Chinese Music

I don’t love all Chinese music (Chinese opera is a taste I have not yet acquired) but there is plenty online to explore:

“Rain Falling From the Roof” by Wu Tong: piano & cello ; cello and sheng  .  More amazing sheng.

I do love the sound of the qin.  The scholar playing the qin (one of the four arts) is often depicted in paintings, like this animated introduction.   Lots of history and information about qin music.  Recordings:

Delightful series of period-costumed performances by Zi De Guqin Studio including:

Three hours of continuous music

Marquis Yi of Zeng’s musical bells: performance , video description, more about bianzhong.   You can see Chinese bells in the British Museum & Compton Verney.
