Chinese Classical Instrumental Music
The Chinese Cultural Theater Group re-creates as closely as possible the highly crafted court and religious music that reached its peak during the T’ang Dynasty (seventh to tenth centuries AD). Musicians use traditional instruments, including the pi-p’a (a plucked string instrument similar to a mandolin), the hsiao (a flute-like instrument with a nasal quality), and the erh-hu (a two-stringed fiddle).
