The sky spreads Wuxing (the five primary elements - wood, fire, earth, metal, and water), which gives birth to Wuyin (the five notes of traditional Chinese music - Jue, Zhi, Gong, Shang, and Yu, corresponding to 3, 5, 1, 2, and 6 in numbered musical notation respectively); the earth has Wuji (the five seasons of spring, summer, long summer, autumn, and winter), which corresponds to Wuhua (birth, growth, steadiness, restraint, and reserve); and man has Wuzang (the five internal organs - liver, heat, spleen, lungs, and kidney), which controls Wuzhi (the five sentiments - anger, delight, thoughtfulness, anxiety, and fear). The changes in Wuxing, Wuji and Wuhua have a direct impact on the changes of all things on the earth and the changes in the state of vital energy and blood of man, leading to changes in man's feeling, mentality and health.

Product Description:
A coproduction between Radio Berlin-Brandenburg and Celestial Harmonies, Stream Flowing is an exquisite recording of traditional music from China, featuring the sheng (Chinese mouth-organ) and yangqin (hammered dulcimer). The sheng is one of China's traditional musical instruments. With a sound similar to that of a European pipe organ, its tone is very clear, piercing and full. It is able to play harmony and multi-voice parts. The unique shape of the sheng is sometimes compared to the phoenix. The two symetrical arrays of pipes symbolize the wings of the legendary immortal bird. The earliest historical records of the sheng appear over three thousand years ago. Confucius, the great philosopher of ancient China, also wrote about the sheng in his anthology of poems. For thousands of years, through successive dynasties, the sheng has been regarded as an important musical instrument for royal musical ensembles. It has also won a place in the hearts of ordinary people. In the 1930s, modern musicians started a new round of improvement of the sheng. However, it was not until the establishment of the People's Republic of China that innovations achieved lasting change. Recognizing the importance of keeping the sheng's traditional features, musicians expanded its sound range, improved its sound quality and multiplied its performance functions. The earliest version of the yangqin was the Persian santur, a form of hammered dulcimer. The Chinese yangqin was introduced to China by Europeans around four-hundred years ago. Ye Mengzhu, a scholar at the end of the Ming Dynasty, mentioned in his books that Europeans played a Western (yang) zither (qinse) on a foreign commercial ship anchored near Shanghai. Once the yangqin had been introduced, it became popular among ordinary people and evolved into the natural accompaniment to traditional drama and regional opera. It was very small, its range of sound was limited and the playing technique was relatively simple. With the unswerving efforts of Chinese musicians, the yangqin nowadays has a wide sound range and beautiful sound quality, and has become a very important Chinese musical instrument.
