Is it true ? "琴 (Guqin) 是弹给自己听的,筝 (Guzheng) 是弹给别人听的"

 

In the classical times, respected gentlemen (君子) are known to play the Guqin to express their emotions.


西遊記 ?

 

one of my favorite  piece

hmmm to some extent what you said is true  "琴 (Guqin) 是弹给自己听的,筝 (Guzheng) 是弹给别人听的"

 

琴 is smaller while 筝 is bigger (not easy to bring around) . 

 

so in olden days, gentlemen will carry 琴 around and travel and usually the "better to do" one can afford. 

 

The music produced also different . 筝 has more base (more string) . 琴 usually have G / D cord . 

 

hence 筝 sound nicer in a hall area .......

UFM 100.3 is having a repeat broadcast of their countdown of top 1000 chinese songs (as voted). It's happening daily. So take a listen to enjoy some songs we heard in our youth.

For those GZ listeners out there, just sharing my friend's daughter's school. Wonderful and talented team lead by their reputable instructor,
Mr Thum Soon Boon.
