The guqin, often known simply as the qin, is traditionally favoured by scholars and literati as an instrument of great subtlety and refinement, as highlighted by the old saying "a gentleman does not part with his qin". Within the genre there are different schools, each of which follows different ideas and artistic traditions.
The Wu stylistic school of qin studies dates back to qin master Cai Yong of the Eastern Han period, as reflected in the famous comment by Zhao Yeli, a Tang qin master, "The Wu style is limpid and soft, meandering like the Yangtze and with slow, lingering sounds that fade off". The Wu style guqin master Wang Duo will stage two recitals with his friends and pupils, to lead us into his spiritual realm of Guqin.
