Yang Zhijian's Qin and Xiao Ensemble "Pingsha Falling Wild Goose" is from "The Fisherman's Questions and Answers" - Yang Zhijian's Guqin and Xiao Works Collection

The Guqin and Xiao Ensemble Album of "The Fisherman's Questions and Answers", which includes: "Pingsha Falling Wild Goose", "Jingzhong Ci", "Three Nongs of Plum Blossoms", "Feng Qiuhuang", "The Fisherman's Questions and Answers", "Phoenix Stage Recalling the Flute" ", "Guan Shanyue", "Pu'an Mantra", "Good Night Quote", "Yangguan Three Stacks" ten pieces.

Guqin's voice is reserved and restrained, and the sound of Xiao is low and whimpering. Regardless of their instrumental characteristics, volume matching, or the temperament of the instruments themselves, the qin and xiao ensemble has always been the highest form of Chinese literati music.

However, not all Guqin pieces are suitable for qinxiao ensemble. For example, the classic pieces of Guangling School, such as "Long Xiang Cao" and "Tianfeng Huan Pei", may be the way to use the guqin solo to better express the dragon flying in the nine days, disappearing and appearing; the fairy walks in the wind, and the clothes are fluttering. Gone with the wind, the freedom of Ring Pei Jingle ups and downs.

Therefore, this album selects the songs that are more suitable for the dialogue of the qin and xiao, such as "Falling Wild Goose in Pingsha" and "Introduction to a Good Night", etc., and invites the outstanding young flute player Fan Linfeng to cooperate and record the album "Question and Answer of the Fisherman".

"The Fisherman's Questions and Answers" itself is the name of a classic and important Guqin piece. Fishing, woodcuttering, farming and reading are the most important forms of production and life in China's agricultural society. The fisherman and the woodcutter are the self-referencing of the ancient literati who longed to live in seclusion and stay away from the world. "The rise and fall of ancient and modern times can be reversed, but the green mountains and green waters are unharmed. The gains and losses of thousands of years are just a matter of words for the fisherman."

Calligraphy and peony painting are performed in the morning, and Guqin is played and recited in the afternoon. This is what he does every day in a hurry. Some people say that his "life calendar" has not changed for decades, which is too boring; some people don't understand why he still insists on spending hours every day playing the guqin, painting, and reciting, and nothing falls behind.
