Tang Jun Qiao

Because it sounds great, is easy to learn, light to carry and inexpensive, the Dizi (Chinese Bamboo Flute) is one of the most popular Chinese instruments in Asia. The Dizi (also called D'Tzu or Zhu Di), is a side blown wind instrument made of Bamboo. The Dizi has a very simple structure: 1 blowhole, 1 membrane hole, 6 finger holes, and two pairs of holes in the end to correct the pitch and hang decorative tassels. Most special about the Dizi is the "Mo-Cong" (membrane hole), which is located between the blowhole and 6th finger hole. The Mo-Cong was invented in the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD) by Liu Xi, and he named the flute the "Seven Star Tube". What makes the Mo-Cong special is its thin membrane covering. Some people mistake this membrane for rice paper, but it is actually made from the inner tube of a bamboo or reed plant. When the Dizi is played, the membrane vibrates with the Dizi, producing a sweet, bright tone. In addition it helps to deliver the Dizi sound far away. Liu Xi stated the purpose of his great invention as "To help produce better tone quality". You can also adjust the membrane to get the just the "right" tone for the specific musical mood.

Tang Jun Qiao

    Audiophile Audition -

This album from Channel of China was a revelation. It may very well be the best collection of Asian traditional music I've ever heard!! While many performances of traditional Asian music may seem a chore to get through, this disc is anything but that. I found its 63-minute runtime passed all too quickly. The recording is superb, as usual from Channel Classics. This one has definitively piqued my interest - I'm ready to hear the rest! Very highly recommended

Tang Jun Qiao provides a fascinating insight into a lively musical culture, which also receives new impulses from contemporary composers. With its extraordinary good sound quality, the album supports the sonic development of the instruments and gives them an almost sculptural effect

    Opus

Another fine album thanks to the excellent series that Channel of China devotes traditional Chinese music. With Tang Jun Qiao, the Dizi is transformed into a voice that is adorned with the most sensual sounds that can be imagined. Dizi Master Tang Jun Qiao delivers an album for listeners in pure DSD full of musical beauty.
