"Guqin - 7 string zither in China with more than 3,000 years history. It is the father of Chinese Musical instructment. Not too many people nowsdays know about playing this special instructment, It does produce very subtle music melody through the sound box built under the guqin.
Guqin, Go Chess, Calligraphym and Painting are considered as the four treausures in China. If you are a scholar in the older days in China, you should have some knowledge in these 4 treasures.
This CD is very subtle and as if it is trying to communicate with you in the soft mellow sound. I am a student of Guqin and really appreciate the down to earth tone, no artifical and man made sound effect in this CD. It is simply string music - but when you pay attention in listneing to it, you defintely feel it is like a orchestra. If you are listening to it in meditation - you could really feel the "poetic" side of this CD. If you are just looking for some western Chinese music, this CD will not be for you. This is a TRUE authentic down to earth Chinese music CD. If you are looking for true simplicity in your life - you may enjoy it!"
