Yin Yang: The Flute Music Piece

| Comments

笛子曲“阴阳”,作曲者不详,演奏者不详,是央视节目“百家讲坛:刘心武揭秘红楼梦”的背景音乐之一。网上有很多人寻找这首曲子,给出的大部分答案是德国”New Age”音乐家”Karunesh”的专辑”Zen Breakfast”中的”Calling Wisdom”一曲,还总加上一句“从2分04秒开始”。这个答案是不对的。”Calling Wisdom”中的那段笛子的旋律确实和“阴阳”很像,但是如果你听过“阴阳”,你就能很容易地分辨出两者的不同。而且两首曲子演奏的时长也相差甚远:”Calling Wisdom”中的笛子演奏大概只有1分30秒,而“阴阳”有4分40秒,前者不是一首完整的曲子,后者才是。至于这两首曲子之间是否存在什么联系,就只能由知情人士给出答案了。

As the content in the “master” branch is unnecessary to be version controlled, I always want to clear the “master” branch of “Octopress” to reduce the size of this repository.

Today I did some research and here is the solution(from here).
