The qin, zheng, and pipa are plucked string instruments that can be traced back to the Sui (581–618 AD) and Tang (618–907 AD) dynasties. All three are generally played as solo instruments—five of the six pieces on this recording are solos. The six performers on this album are renowned masters and teachers of their instruments.
Liner notes by Wang Qun offer an overview of the history of Chinese music and in-depth commentary on each selection.
