Guqin, Guitar, and Composition | Fullbright Project | Jeff Roberts - 0 views

  •  
    The timbral aspects of guqin technique are unparalleled in stringed instruments of the world.
    With over 20 different types of right hand plucking techniques and almost as many left hand
    fingering techniques, the potential for timbral contrasts between notes is immense. When
    listening to guqin music, the appreciation of timbral contrast is traditionally one of the most
    important aspects of the music. Such appreciation of contrast can happen locally from one note
    to the next or structurally - appreciating different sections of the music set in different timbral
    styles. Such appreciation for timbre on this level in Western music has only been present since
    the beginning of the 20th century in classical music.
