''In 1981, Jean-Michel Jarre became the first western artist to tour China. He performed five concerts in Shanghai and Beijing. During the short tour, he recorded the shows, and in 1982 this historic event was released as a double album for fans all over the world to enjoy. Les Concerts en Chine is an incredible album of electronic music that Jarre pioneered. He was able to use electronics to make sweeping, melodic, almost classical music. Unlike Kraftwerk, Jarre’s music was not cold and not made for machines, but rather deeply moving and, at times, very emotional. He has developed his own style over time and has created some very incredible music. Although the album is live, he did add one studio to the package, the last track on the album, “Souvenir de Chine” (Souvenir Of China).
The music is instrumental and electronic. Not dance, more art/prog rock. Jarre does employ an orchestra, The Peking Conservatoire Symphony Orchestra, on the song “Jonques de pêcheurs au crépuscule” (Fishing Junks at Sunset). It is a beautiful mixture of electronic and orchestral, in the same vein as Brian Eno, Philip Glass or Vangelis. Not that his music sounds similar, but rather in the tone and texture of the music.''
