Guqin Analysis 分析
Li Yuanqing; Zha Fuxi; Pu Xuezhai; Yang Yinliu; Guan Pinghu 1
Modern qin analysis is indebted to the
guqin work of 1956 led by Zha Fuxi. Regarding the photo at right, Zha Fuxi, Pu Xuezhai and Guan Pinghu were all qin players. Li Yuanqing was then Director of the Music Research Institute, while Yang Yinliu was probably the most important historian of Chinese music in general.

This photo, dated 1954, was copied from Zha Fuxi: Qinxue Wencui.

楊蔭瀏 Yang Yinliu (1899–1984; Wiki) was a noted music historian. His name was listed in a 1930s Anglican Church Chinese hymnal as "Ernest Yang". Thanks to Woo Shingkwan for sending me a pdf copy of the relevant pages, as well as the following reference to an article that Yang wrote about the qin:

楊蔭瀏 Ernest Y.L. Yang. 2009. 《琴譜》 The chin music. 
《楊蔭瀏全集》,中國藝術研究院音樂研究所編:第11冊:181–236。南京:江蘇文藝出版社。
"In Chinese and English, with transcriptions of qin music as played by 王燕卿 Wang Yanqing" (1867-1921; Meian School)

李元慶 Li Yuanqing was apparently an administrator.
