This piece gains a whole different voice when played on harp, but is, I think, equally majestic in its own right. Performed by Amy Turk.
Harp Cover with Loop Station, by harpist Viviane Nüscheler.
According to the Harp Spectrum,
“In the 20th century, a new demand arose for a national instrument rooted in ancient times, yet still contemporary. In 1964, Konghou was revived in Shenyang, China, and during the 1980s several musical instrument factories in China began to design and produce a new type of Konghou combining the Guzhang (koto, like a movable-bridge zither), Pipa (lute) and Qin (mandolin), and utilizing the modern technology of the pedal harp.”
Performed by Tyné & Katie, Dec 30, 2013. You can see more videos by harpist/singer Tyné Angela on her YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/TyneAngela
