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.

Chinese Translation
古琴、古筝还有琵琶都是拨弦类乐器,这些乐器早在隋朝(公元581-618)和唐朝(公元618-907年)就出现了。这三种乐器原本都是独奏的乐器,在本专辑当中的六首乐曲中有五首即是独奏。六位表演者都是著名的大师,同时也是该乐器的老师。
