Chinese Music for the Phoenix: Washington Guzheng Society

Chinese Music for the Phoenix: Washington Guzheng Society

Enjoy the graceful melodies and lovely textures of the classical Chinese guzheng, a zither with twenty-one strings that dates to the fifth century BCE. Virtuoso Bing Xia and her student Rujia Teng perform classical and contemporary works that embody many aspects of the mythical phoenix of Chinese legend. Their performance was recorded in 2013 in conjunction with the exhibition Nine Deaths, Two Births: Xu Bing's Phoenix Project, which was on view in the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery from April 27 to September 2, 2013.
