The instrument brought from somewhere west of China by Zhang Qian in Han Dynasty (206 -220 BC) was commonly regarded as the origin of dizi. Dizi has a bright lyrical sound and is often used to describe vivid scenes. The concerts on Jun 8 & 22 feature music hand-picked by young dizi player Yau Kwan-lam with respectively two themes “Postcard of Scenery” & “Dizi x Dizi” that showcase the unique playing techniques of dizi, such as circular breathing and imitation of birdsongs, together with the sound of guzheng, percussion, xiao and sheng. Audience can enjoy a wide range of dizi music.

西漢張騫通西域時傳入橫吹,普遍認為是笛子的前身。笛子音色明亮具歌唱性,能夠生動的描繪情景,亦可模仿大自然的景象。香港青年笛子樂手邱君琳將分別於 6 月 8及 22 日以「情.景」與「雙管齊下」為主題,與多年來合作無間的友人演奏相關作品。節目展現笛子的獨特技巧,例如模仿雀鳥和循環換氣等等。笛子可再細分為梆笛、曲笛和大笛,音色大小各有不同,透過和簫、笙、古箏、敲擊等傳統樂器合奏,大家可一聽笛子音樂的多個不同面貌。
