Prog. notes: In ancient Chinese literature, plum flower and Guqin, a plucked instrument, represent an essential part of gentleman-characters. This piece is inspired by an ancient music piece by Hengyi of the Jin Dynasty that depicts a gentleman’s moral integrity and resolution. During the performance, the Guqin is played using various fingering techniques different from those used on western instruments, such as flicking, sliding and water-drop-sounding tremolo plucking.
