The real Yang and how the concubine pipa?

There must be a fan bingbing, at first, the topic.High-profile “Ma Zhen” highway to although be delete, movie “Yang” remains trough point.There was a period of fan bingbing as Yang play the plot of the pipa, beauty, beauty, but the real way is unlikely to be playing pipa in tang dynasty.

Yang will pipa?
According to zheng in his “Ming emperor miscellany” (a book Yu Dazhong nine years, 855 AD) records: “there the officer Bai Xiuzhen, since the back shu, pipa to offer. The slot in logic 逤 wingceltis, jade, and glory springs, with gold wisp of red into the double phoenix”. The imperial concubine every hug is pipa music in liyuan, music sorrow, float like a cloud.”Tang Zheng Yu (around AD 859) before and after the lifetime of the jin Yang door poem “under the” jade slave pipa Long Xiang dial “sentence since the note:” (Yang), the imperial concubine wonderful pipa, its instruments to smell in the world, there are logic 逤 wingceltis for tank, dragon cedar for dial.”A book from the Ming emperor miscellany “earlier hu Qu Tan Binlu, later song dynasty Yang too really gaiden and archives of the nationwide examination, there are also records of approximate.

Yang will pipa it should undoubtedly righteousness, and may also be quite well.Its special pipa quite, have the west of sichuan’s logic 逤 ebony is lagging, Long Xiang cedar for plectrum (the right hand of board, used for pince tool), there are patterns of the double phoenix decoration, quite rare.

Master of tang dynasty music, Yang often should play the lute and “saburo” phase and the flute.When the nobles are worshipped in Yang door (” competing for the imperial concubine pipa disciple “, “Ming emperor miscellany”), the jade bracelet often teach their tunes, they “are widely have pressed”, ass auction is quite excited.

Five string lute

Attentive audience may be found, fan bingbing embrace of pipa has five strings, more than four string lute modern one.Tang dynasty pipa do have four or five strings, four string pipa neck bent back, also known as “QuXiang pipa”, and five string pipa as straight, the neck not fold, form a more slender.The name of “pipa” becoming a four string QuXiang pipa points, five string straight a pipa is referred to as the “five string” to show the difference.

Japanese scholar Mr Lin Qian three that four of five strings are pipa with out of central Asia, forming four string pipa development in Asia, especially in Iran;While the five string is completed in India.In the tang dynasty palace “ten music”, both the pipa occupies a very important position.Unfortunately, five strings pipa rapidly disappearing after tang wu, in the early years of the northern song dynasty is only, to the last years has almost vanished, its status completely replaced by four string lute.

Now the city of nara in Japan shoso-in retains the most complete five strings in the tang dynasty pipa physical, as one of the warehouse treasure shoso-in.It connect body to enchase mother-of-pearl, stalwart dial also positive to hawksbill important outline of a man on the camel shock play four string QuXiang pipa pattern, vivid and exquisite.”Yang” is based on a prototype, do a pair of imitation.

Shoso-in hidden mother-of-pearl rosewood five strings in tang dynasty pipa, left and right sides of positive and negative respectively.


In the tang dynasty pipa playing, not “half covered face”

So what’s the problem?

The first is the position of fan bingbing, held the pipa.And keep the way of modern pipa (play) held vertically, the tang dynasty pipa widely held position as on the diagonal, horizontal or inclined to embrace.Fan bingbing have to pipa horizontally, like holding the guitar today embrace pipa, is much closer to the tang dynasty pipa’s real state.

That was written by bai juyi of tang dynasty “pipa” in the “pious covered face” is lying?Both cross over, face how to “half covered face”?Don’t forget to “pipa” the pipa female half block the time just sprung, shyly hid behind the pipa, haven’t sat down and began to play.On everybody’s lips widely people: “half covered face”, though now used to describe the pipa playing may be appropriate, but not as the tang dynasty pipa playing style.Shoso-in mother-of-pearl rosewood in tang dynasty five strings pipa on display, aquarium deliberately keep it on the inclined posture, to guide the audience know the pipa playing the way of the tang dynasty.

Nara "62th shoso-in exhibition on display at the national museum of the five string lute, display way closer to the tang dynasty pipa playing real posture.

Why a pipa began to keep horizontal or oblique hold up and down, in the long evolution in the later again into a vertical embrace?This should be it way of occasions and play.Pipa “this from hu”, is often play a musical instrument, on horseback, transverse held posture can lower center of gravity, convenient to play.

Right hand holding the other plectrum plucked, horizontal string can swing the wrist with direction – plectrum strike direction vertical, more convenient.And with the pipa’s way gradually from plectrum dial to flick, nearly vertical posture can make the right play a variety of techniques in the most natural condition.But in the use of special techniques, such as “shake”, the direction of finger need with the wrist fast touch, still make body vertical 欹 bend a little to the left, above the diagonal hold the attitude of the play, so that the vertical finger touch.

At with flick, ordinary people with a plectrum

What is, and so on, said along while, plectrum?Pipa is not playing with his fingers before?

Yes, the tang dynasty play pipa is generally not directly touch with finger, and with a plectrum.Plectrum is composed of elongated shank and fan-shaped dial face, the right hand grip used to play the pipa tools.Style in tang dynasty famous pipa virtuoso cao gangchuan stiffness, has been described as “if the wind and rain” – “dial”, is to touch the strings played with a plectrum.Bai juyi “pipa” the poem called “ponder to put the string”, that is after the pipa playing, playing with the plectrum inserted between the string and string.

In the evolution of the pipa’s way after a long only gradually by using plectrum plucked to refer to the instrument, and in the tang dynasty, with the method of the plectrum play occupies the absolute mainstream.”New tang book” aspiration, five strings “old pluck with wood, pei to handle the play god FuChu, emperor taizong yue, later generations for pipa xi.”Taizong period of shule musician pei rune pioneered the pipa precedent with the hand, it is conceivable that the original is dial, and the monotony of playing techniques leap to the liberation of finger play, expression is greatly enriched, the difficulty is not the average person can hold.Therefore pei runes to start playing after hand skills still slow development.

While opening the Ming emperor miscellanea, led by the book of jin Yang poem “has been clearly shows that the imperial concubine not hand to play, use is” Long Xiang dial “, namely Long Xiang cedar do plectrum.

1914 from Yunnan Huize Zhang coppersmith making “spot tripod” won the Silver Award at the Panama International Exposition.
Spot copper – production process
Copper Huize spot copper technology products factory Hui Guo Dehong master said:
“Health plaque production of special attention, it must use 95% of native copper, forged little by little, and then high temperature to burn (refining) spots. Some step program to be repeated several times, a dozen Road (step) we are relying on a hammer a hammer (knocking) play out, to burn a fire, call back. it can be said, a product of dozens of fire to burn, to fight tens of thousands to the final shape of the hammer. ”
According to Master Guo Dehong, burn spot is the most critical one process. Blush charcoal, oak charcoal must spend a good, a lot of the heap in the house, in which the workpiece is buried; then, let the natural Shaolian, ventilation, heating, the length of time to grasp the furnace, there are stringent requirements, no skilled technique and practical experience can not be competent. If the temperature is too low, some of the ingredients of the raw material is difficult to gather, form a crystal plaque free; high temperature melts the workpiece type ruined. Coppersmith past as a living force, a step which many of the key technologies, the master did not teach apprentice family names, as well as “male – female” is said, therefore, failed to spot copper technology promotion.
Since the spot copper need to use high-grade quality natural copper as a raw material, and it is difficult to find a copper content of more than 90% natural raw copper, while the hand-forged copper hit the spot can not be as large-scale production like batch casting, even piggy build such a small spot copper handicrafts, but also need a month’s time, which directly led to scarcity of spot copper finished. Coupled with spot copper is hand-built, each artist has its own “originality”, each piece is unique, and therefore calcined fight Huize spot copper has a very high appreciation and collection value.
