Traditional-classical music from China by Pipa en Guqin virtuoso Cheng Yu.
She plays the original 1936 Van Gulik-Picken silk-string guqin, with Dennis Kwong Thye Lee on xiao flute. Steeped in history, this treasured guqin was previously owned by two of the world’s greatest 20th-century sinologists – Robert Hans Van Gulik and Laurence Picken. The sense of antiquity is enhanced as these well-known zither classics are played on original silk strings from the 1930s.
