Product Description:
A coproduction between Radio Berlin-Brandenburg and Celestial Harmonies, Stream Flowing is an exquisite recording of traditional music from China, featuring the sheng (Chinese mouth-organ) and yangqin (hammered dulcimer). The sheng is one of China's traditional musical instruments. With a sound similar to that of a European pipe organ, its tone is very clear, piercing and full. It is able to play harmony and multi-voice parts. The unique shape of the sheng is sometimes compared to the phoenix. The two symetrical arrays of pipes symbolize the wings of the legendary immortal bird. The earliest historical records of the sheng appear over three thousand years ago. Confucius, the great philosopher of ancient China, also wrote about the sheng in his anthology of poems. For thousands of years, through successive dynasties, the sheng has been regarded as an important musical instrument for royal musical ensembles. It has also won a place in the hearts of ordinary people. In the 1930s, modern musicians started a new round of improvement of the sheng. However, it was not until the establishment of the People's Republic of China that innovations achieved lasting change. Recognizing the importance of keeping the sheng's traditional features, musicians expanded its sound range, improved its sound quality and multiplied its performance functions. The earliest version of the yangqin was the Persian santur, a form of hammered dulcimer. The Chinese yangqin was introduced to China by Europeans around four-hundred years ago. Ye Mengzhu, a scholar at the end of the Ming Dynasty, mentioned in his books that Europeans played a Western (yang) zither (qinse) on a foreign commercial ship anchored near Shanghai. Once the yangqin had been introduced, it became popular among ordinary people and evolved into the natural accompaniment to traditional drama and regional opera. It was very small, its range of sound was limited and the playing technique was relatively simple. With the unswerving efforts of Chinese musicians, the yangqin nowadays has a wide sound range and beautiful sound quality, and has become a very important Chinese musical instrument.

Product Description:
Hangzhou, capital of Zhejiang Province, held a position of importance from the time of the Sui dynasty (581-617 C.E.), and is sited at the end of the Grand Canal, with linked waterways that provided communication between the provinces of China. It was the capital of the Southern Song dynasty (1127-1276), visited by Marco Polo in the following Mongol Yuan dynasty. He compared Hangzhou to Venice, praised its traditional arts and crafts, and commented on its great importance in the spice trade and on the beauty of the West Lake with its bordering pavilions and temples. Historical monuments abound, with temples and pagodas, and buildings that recall ancient China. The music chosen for this tour of Hangzhou is played on traditional Chinese instruments. Unusually there is a Bach Minuet, transcribed for the Chinese dulcimer, the yangqin, used to accompany a visit to a silk museum. Other instruments heard include the dizi, the Chinese bamboo transverse flute, and ensembles of wind and strings, known as 'silk and bamboo' from their silk strings and bamboo pipes. Traditional Chinese music, like Chinese painting, is generally associated with a scene or poem, as revealed in its evocative titles.
