Silk String Quartet



Award-winning, all female Silk String Quartet plays a mixture of traditional and new works on this recording. The combination of four stringed instruments – pipa (4-stringed lute), guzheng (5-foot 21-stringed zither), erhu (2-stringed fiddle) and yangqin (hammered dulcimer) – is beautiful to listen to and unique to the Quartet. Hauntingly beautiful and tranquil, but also exuberant and boisterous, this music portrays moonlight scenes, river landscapes, court dances and more. For anyone who is new to Chinese music, this CD is the perfect introduction. Total Time: 51 minutes
