A Probe into the Nationalization of Violin Performance Art in China

Sheng Qin


The violin originated in Italy in the 17th century and has a history of more than 300 years. It is a very popular instrument in the world as well as the piano. At present, the violin has been fully recognized by the public, and has become the first choice of many musicians. Therefore, it is worth thinking about how to nationalize the violin as a western instrument, better integrate Chinese and western culture into the violin, and apply Chinese playing skills and music theory to the violin, so as to create more magnificent chapters, which are welcomed by both Chinese and western audiences. These are the focuses of this paper.
