The guqin (goo chin, also referred to as the qin) is the most revered of Chinese instruments and China's oldest stringed instrument, with a history of some 3000 years. It became part of a tradition cultivated by the Chinese scholars and literati, and an instrument associated with philosophers, sages, and emperors. The guqin was also a very important subject in Confucius' education system. Renowned guqin performer and scholar Wang Fei guides us on a special musical journey, introducing Chinese culture and bringing to life the sound of the sages. Performing guqin masterpieces from different dynasties, she will also share the legends and folktales behind the music and intimate her own commentary and insights to bring these ancient works to present day.
