The erhu (Chinese: 二胡; pinyin: èrhú), sometimes known in the West as the 'Chinese violin' or Chinese two string fiddle, is a two-stringed bowed musical instrument, used as a solo instrument as well as in small ensembles and large orchestras. It belongs to the huqin family of bowed string Chinese instruments, together with the zhonghu (中胡), gaohu (高胡), banhu (板胡), jinghu (京胡), sihu (四胡), and numerous others. It is said that there are over 40 different variations of the generic huqin instrument. (Wikipedia on Erhu: cf. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erhu)
I have recently purchased this double CD in China, and ripped it right for the lovers of Chinese music here at AvaxHome. The title is even more poetical in the original: "The Erhu of Love Songs", or why not translate it more generously: "Erhu in Love".
