Legends of Wood and Silk (China) by Qiyuan Lu

Having existed for over two thousand years, the Guqin is one of China's most original string instruments. In the year 2019, the 82-year-old Guqin master, Wong Duo, reluctantly performed in his hometown of Suzhou, where his lifelong dedication to the revival of traditional silk string style has made him a minority among the predominant steel string players. To support him, Li Guo, Wong's youngest disciple whose playing strongly echoes that of her master's, invited Wong to give a truly authentic Guqin concert in the modern cosmopolitan of Shenzhen, in order to reach a larger and more diverse audience.
