Guzheng, as one of
the most representative Chinese instruments, first
appeared around the Warring States period (475 - 221
BC), then became extremely popular during the Tang
Dynasty (618 - 907 AD) and spread to all neighboring
areas ever since. Guzheng was originally a rather
simple instrument with only five strings. After all
the years of evolution, today's Guzheng has
twenty-one strings and is still widely used in all
kinds of Chinese music.
is superseded by ChineeGuZheng II,
hence it is turned into freeware, and it is now
equipped with QIN RV 2.0 engine, giving it more
possibilities than before.
Even though ChineeGuZheng Classic is
much less expressive and less detailed than
ChineeGuZheng II, ChineeGuZheng Classic has its own
place. Other than the different sound character, one
unique feature that sets ChineeGuZheng Classic apart
from other GuZheng libraries is that it was
performed using GuQin's techniques. This subtle yet
distinctive difference makes ChineeGuZheng Classic
one good collector's item.
