In 1981, just after the release of his third album, Champs magnétiques (which followed the success of Oxygène and Equinoxe), Jean-Michel Jarre managed to bag a hard-earned Chinese tour. It was the first time a Western artist had toured China under the communist regime, five years after Mao’s death. He would perform five shows at the end of October at the Beijing Sports Palace and the Shanghai Stadium alongside keyboardist Dominique Perrier and drummer Roger Rizzitelli. They were also joined by sound engineer Frédérick Rousseau, which gave the tour a slightly rocky edge. The band played hits like ‘Equinoxe, Pt. 4’ and ‘Chants magnétiques, Pt. 2’ for their curious Chinese audience, but they also included songs composed for the occasion such as ‘Orient Express’, ‘Nuit à Shanghai’, ‘Jonques de pêcheurs au crépuscule’ and ‘Souvenir de Chine’. The latter closes this stunning double album, newly remastered to celebrate the 40th anniversary of this historic tour. And who can forget the laser harp? A science-fictional instrument created by Bernard Szajner and played for the first time in China. Jarre described this tour as ‘an encounter of the third kind’. It was, without doubt, an encounter that won over the audience, whose vigorous applause can be heard on this historic recording. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz
