Musical cultivation was an essential part of a Confucian scholar’s education, equally important as literature and calligraphy. Appreciated for its pure and lingering tones, qin is usually associated with the literati culture for its subtle and understated aesthetics. It is said that the qin music directly reflects the player’s state of mind, with a harmonic melody suggesting the union between the musician, his music, and the universe.

Canaletto, London: Interior of the Rotunda at Ranelagh, 1754
From the National Gallery: The inscription in Italian on the back of the original canvas states that the picture was painted in London in 1754 for the artist’s patron Thomas Hollis, and that the view was unique in the artist’s work. The Rotunda in Ranelagh Gardens, Chelsea, was erected as a public venue for various entertainments in 1741 and closed in 1803. Musical concerts were held and Mozart performed there in 1764.
