Pipa, also known as the Chinese lute, has been played since the Han Dynasty (around 200 BC ). Loved and praised by both the common people and artists, the unique sound of the instrument has been describe as “the sound of the golden rock”, or “the sound of falling beads on a jade plate”. Ms. Hao Yi-fan, the 4th generation master of the “Wang”-style pipa and professor at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, will delight you with her performance of Chinese classics on her favourite instrument.
