The melody of "Gusu Xing" is based on Kunqu Opera music and has the flavor of Jiangnan. The music is elegant and expresses the beautiful scenery of the ancient city of Suzhou (known as Gusu in ancient times) and the joyful mood of people visiting.

The lyrical Andante allows visitors to enjoy the exquisite and beautiful Suzhou Gardens. The middle section is an enthusiastic little allegro, where tourists play and overflow with emotion. Then the theme is reproduced, and in the compressed tones, the melody is more pleasant to listen to, making people immersed in the beautiful scenery for a long time, lingering and forgetting to return, which is intriguing.

Combined with the techniques of doubling, beating, and vibrato that are often used in southern flute performances, the performance of the piece is more moving and perfect.
