Melody: Wild Geese in Autumn   /   Introduction to the paintings   /   Preludes 首頁
Qiu Hong (Wild Geese in Autumn) #01
Anonymous paintings and tablature in the Palace Museum, Beijing
秋鴻圖 #01 
明佚名故宮圖、譜
last illustration / next illustration Crossing a river (渡江 Du Jiang) 上一圖 / 下一圖

00.00 - 01.15 on Shen Qi Mi Pu CD 6 #8 (in harmonics)

Title in Shen Qi Mi Pu (1425):
Riding clouds while crossing a river (凌雲渡江 Ling Yun Du Jiang)

Here in the palace edition, under the general title 秋鴻 Qiu Hong, the following is written:

妙品夾鍾清商曲
Miaopin Jiazhong Qingshang melody (previous page)
世謂清商楚望譜瓢翁曉山翁累刪
Now they speak of the Qingshang tablature of (Guo) Chuwang. Piaoweng (Xu Tianmin) and (his disciple) Xiaoshangweng (Xu Xiaoshan) laboriously edited it.

Could this "世謂" suggest that the tablature here is earlier than that of Wugang Qinpu (1546), which came down through a separate tradition? And does "riding clouds" (1696.70 凌雲 lingyun) in the 1425 title for Section 1 suggest that Zhu Quan did not know of the painting, while the painter knew only of the shorter title? On the other hand, does the attribution to Guo Chuwang suggest that Zhu Quan revised some old tablature for his own handbook, elaborating some of the titles (further comment)?

As for the tablature, that of 1425 is identical to here.

The 1546 tablature is slightly different.
