Along the River During the Qingming Festival (清明上河图, Qing Ming Shang He Tu, Xiao, 箫)

Along the River During the Qingming Festival (清明上河图, Qing Ming Shang He Tu, Xiao, 箫) was composed of the famous painting in the Song Dynasty painter Zhang Zeduan(张择端).
Along the River During the Qingming Festival ( 清明上河图)  is a painting attributed to Song Dynasty artist Zhang Zeduan (1085–1145). It captures the daily life of people and the landscape of the capital, Bianjing, today’s Kaifeng, from the Northern Song period. The theme is often said to celebrate the festive spirit and worldly commotion at the Qingming Festival, rather than the holiday’s ceremonial aspects, such as tomb sweeping and prayers. Successive scenes reveal the lifestyle of all levels of the society from rich to poor as well as different economic activities in rural areas and the city, and offer glimpses of period clothing and architecture.

乐曲是根据宋朝画家张择端的传世名画《清明上河图》写意而成,现藏于北京故宫博物院,此画以其宏伟壮阔的幅面,真实地描绘了北宋宣和年间汴河及其两岸在清明时节的风貌。长卷可分三个部分:第一部分开卷画是晨曦初露,郊外河边道上一支负重驴队,缓缓走来,行进在城道上。寂静村头,略呈寒意,房舍稀落,嫩柳初放。第二部分描写汴河之上交通穿梭往来的繁荣景色。虹桥之上,行人如织,桥下激流之中,船家紧张忙碌,这是画卷的高潮部分。最后一部分描绘市区街景:各行各业,应有尽有,街上行人往来不绝。洞箫曲清婉悠扬,充分体现画卷的壮阔雄伟,旋律优美流畅,意境深长。
