More than 50 jing hu (Chinese bowed two-stringed instrument) are being exhibited at the National Center for the Performing Arts in Beijing starting from February 15. Some of them are more than 100 years old.

Jing hu, or hu qin, is primarily used in Peking Opera. Small in size yet very high in pitch, jing hu plays a leading role in the accompaniment of this Chinese performance.

The showpieces were private collections of Lou Zhuangdong, a Peking Opera instrument collector from Shanghai. The 50 instruments included jing hu used by famous musicians and opera performers, made by renowned instrument workshops and some made with special material.

One special jing hu was made with a bamboo smoking pipe once used by ethnic people. And there are two instruments called "Twins from North and South" that took two craftsmen over 20 years to make.

Weng Si, a Peking Opera scholar, praised the value of jing hu.

"Jing hu plays a key role along with its players in the development of Peking Opera. To some extent, it saw the opera's birth, growth and maturity," Weng said.

The exhibition will run through March 15.

15日,“珍琴流芳——传世京胡撷萃”展览在国家大剧院艺术沙龙展厅拉开帷幕。本次展览为国家大剧院“认识中外乐器系列”展览之一,共展出京胡逾五十把,其中年龄最大的京胡已超过百岁。

京胡是京剧声腔伴奏的核心乐器,也是京剧乐队的领袖。它个头虽小,部件只有简单的琴担、琴筒、弦轸、马尾弓,演奏声音却响亮得不可思议,是戏园子里当之无愧的重要角色,具有极大的舞台实用功能和收藏价值。

本次展览展出的京胡由楼庄东先生收藏,主要为晚清以来的珍品,分为“名家用琴”“名铺造琴”“先贤老琴”“特材制琴”“慈严遗琴”和“纪念版琴”六个部分。其中,“名家用琴”不仅有晚清时期著名琴家梅雨田、孙佐臣的珍贵用琴,也有京剧学者陈彦衡、陈道安的教学用琴。另外,“京胡一代宗师”徐兰沅的用琴和他制作的琴在本次展览中也有收录。民国时期京、津、沪的“名铺造琴”是本次展览的一大亮点,马良正、史善朋、洪广源、吕顺昌、周井千都是当时响亮的胡琴名工造坊,代表了其时最高的制作水准。

本次展览持续至3月15日,观众只需一张参观票,即可进入传世京胡珍品的世界。
