Posted in Chinese music by Administrator on the August 2nd, 2011

As I studied the four legendary Chinese stories (牛郎织女Niulang and Zhinv, 孟姜女哭长城Lady Meng Jiang cried the Great Wall, 梁山伯与祝英台Butterfly Lovers, 白蛇传White Snake), I ran into Butterfly Lovers’ beautiful violin concerto It was so amazingly moving! The music led me to another sweet and heavenly Chinese music春江花月夜Blossoms on a Spring Moonlit Night Then I can’t stop, how could I resist such a pleasure to my ears? So I continued to find out the top 10 most well-known Chinese traditional music. Five traditional Chinese instruments are played in these music, they are古筝Guzhen,古琴 Guqin,琵琶Lute,二胡Erhu, and 洞箫Xiao.
