Elegance of the Qing Dynasty - 2019 Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra
Shen Yun Compositions
D.F. / arr. Junyi TanTraditional Chinese art emphasizes yi jing, a particular frame of mind or an atmosphere that the artist conveys. In this piece, the yi jing depicts the tableau of elegant court ladies in an idyllic summer palace. The scene is set at the height of the Qing Dynasty in the late seventeenth century. The pipa leads us to a quiet courtyard as harp and strings murmur along. Violins join the conversation before a breeze sweeps through the pipa and erhu, and the orchestra expands their theme. Finally, the pipa returns to serene contemplation.
