The music of erhu has a lot of enthusiasts in China. The timbre of erhu is graceful, near to the human voice, and the instrument is very owerful to express, to voice the temperaments and feelings of the humanity. In the garden of Chinese instrumental music, we can say, it occupiesa special position and sends forth a characteristic fragrance.

The erhu became a solo instrument relatively late. Compared with the ancient qin whose history has several thousand years, and the pipa whose history approaches a thousand years, the history of erhu as a solo instrument has only 70 years. In the 1920s, for the first time, Liu Tianhua played erhu as a solo instrument, t was unregarded in that era, in concerts. Then he composed some famous pieces for it, such as "Reciting on a Sickbed", "Marching on the Bright Road" and "Birds are Singing in Tranquil Valley", etc. By his efforts, the erhu showed its life and its importance as soon as it entered the musical temple, and then became an outstanding member in the family of Chinese instruments. Liu's contribution has epoch-making significance, it demonstrates the courage and resourcefulness of this great master of the national music.

In recent 40 years, along with the wide-ranging development of Chinese traditional orchestras in the continent, the art of erhu, both technique and
repertoire, has advanced by leaps and bounds. Today, there are many excellent players and so many compositions, it appears a gratifying prospect.

Since 1987, according as the demand of audiences, China Record Corporation had edited An Anthology of Chinese Traditional and Folk Music. Two sorts of them, "A Collection of Music Played on the Pipa" and "A Collection of Music Played on the Guzheng", have been published. "A Collection of Music Played on the Erhu" has been begun to edit in 1989. It takes 3 years to gather material, to organise recording, to write the introduction to the music and its performers, and to modify elaborately. This giant project is achieved at last, our audiences will obtain them on October this year.

"A Collection of Music played on the Erhu" of "An Anthology of Chinese Traditional and Folk Music" is separated into 10 volumes. It basically embrace the pith and marrow of the art of erhu. You can find 38 performers playing the pieces by Liu Tianhua, Hua Yanjun, Liu Beimao, Peng Xiuwen, Huang Haihuai, Wu Houyuan, Liu Wenjin, Wang Zhulin, etc, amount to 86 pieces of 59 composers who create or arrange them. The contents and subjects of these pieces are very varicolored, also are their styles and genres. There are arrangements of ancient music "Moon Light is Shedding on the Road of Journey", of local opera "Qinqiang Qupai", of folk music "The River Water", and "A Shandong Ditty"; there are also compositions on the modern life, for instance, ,"Horse Race", "Going to a Fair", "Happy Herdsmen", "Sanmen Gorge Rhapsody" and concertos, "The
Great Wall", "Unyielded Su Wu".

For the sake of the readers' convenience, we classify the 10 volumes as follows: Volume 1 is a collection of compositions by Liu Tianhua. "A Moon is Mirrored in the Second Fountain" and 4 other pieces by Hua Yanjun, who goes by the name of A Bing, are included in Volume 2, but it is a thousand pities that we haven't succeeded in affording the orginal record performed by composer, because of the unsatisfactory tone quality recorded at that time. Volume 3 to Volume 7 are individual collections of erhuist Min Huifen, Wang Guotong, Jiang Jianhua, Chen Yaoxing, Jiang Cairu, Xu Jiangde and Zhu Changyao many pieces in these volumes are composed or arranged (by the performers) themselves. The other famous erhuists Jiang Fengzhi, Zhang Rui, Zhang Shao, Liu Mingyuan, Chen Jiebing, Xu Jiangde appear in Volume 1, 2, 8, 9 and 10. "A Collection of Music Played on the Erhu" is indeed a monumental work embracing all the virtuosos and famous pieces of the erhu. We believe that "An Anthology of Chinese
Traditional and Folk Music" will be greeted by vast numbers of music lovers and personages throughout the world.
