Zheng Music

Also named as Guzheng, the Zheng is known as the Chinese Zither. The traditional Zheng has 13 to 16 strings but some modern models have as many as 25 to 30 strings. It is tuned to the pentatonic scale with a range exceeding three octaves. The Zheng was already a popular music instrument in Shaanxi Province almost 3000 years ago. During the most prosperous years of the Tang Dynasty, the Zheng was admired by both scholars and ordinary folks. Poems were written about it and outstanding performances were recorded in literature. Its timbre is resonant, expressive and elegant. The Zheng is one of the most important Chinese instruments.
