Cheng Yu plays the original 1936 Van Gulik-Picken silk-string guqin, with Dennis Kwong Thye Lee on xiao flute.

This cherished guqin, steeped in history, was previously owned by two of the world’s greatest 20th century sinologists - Robert Hans Van Gulik and Laurence Picken. The feeling of antiquity is further heightened as these well-known zither classics are played on original silk strings dating back to the 1930s.

Cheng Yu plays well-known zither classics on a guqin with special historical provenance.

Cheng Yu has been involved in various contemporary cross-culture collaborations with musicians such as pianist Lang Lang, cellist Matthew Barley, Damon Albarn and composers Tan Dun, Peter Wiegold and Gabriel Prokofiev.
