    Last week, we had a chance


    to enjoy the beautiful natural scenery


    on Gulangyu Island


    and visit some old buildings


    hidden in quiet alleys.


    Today we're going to show you


    a fresh and sprightly aspect

    of the island.


    Han Jia, what is the other aspect


    of Gulangyu Island?




    The sound of the piano?




    I guess you haven't noticed


    wherever you go on Gulangyu Island,


    you can hear the sound of

    piano music.


    韩佳: 所以,今天呢,

    So today


    we're going to show you that


    Gulangyu is also an island

    of music.


    Soon after Xiamen became

    one of


    China's earliest open ports for

    foreign trade,


    many countries established


    consulates and built villas on

    Gulangyu Island.


    It was at that time that pianos

    were introduced to Gulangyu.


    And today


    nearly every household here

    has a piano.


    Does "jiajiahuhu" mean every

    family, or every household?




    "Jiajiahuhu" is a noun,


    which means each and every

    family or household.


    So "jiajiahuhu" means each and

    every family, or every household.

    Zài zhèli jihū jiā jiā hù hù dōu yǒu gāngqín

    在 这里,几乎 家 家 户 户 都 有 钢琴。

    Nearly every household here has a piano.


    Formerly I didn't notice that.


    Today when I walk along

    the streets of Gulangyu,


    I feel quite differently


    because from time to time


    I can hear the beautiful sound

    of piano music


    coming from a window on

    the side of the street.


    And sometimes


    you may see talented locals


    performing musical instruments

    for passers-by.


    Everywhere on Gulangyu Island,


    you'll always feel the charm

    of music.


    I don't understand why you say


    music is pretty.


    You misheard the tone

    of the word.


    I said "mèilì" (charm),


    not "měilì" (beautiful).


    "Meili" is a noun,


    which means charm or appeal

    of something,


    for example, the charm of arts,

    full of charms.


    So "meili" here is a noun,


    that refers to the charm or

    appeal of something.


    Gulangyu is an island of music.

    Zài zhèli rénmen shíkè dōu néng gǎnshòu dao yīnyuè de wèilì

    在 这里, 人们 时刻 都 能 感受 到 音乐 的 魅力。

    Here people can always feel the charm

    of music.


    Look, on the road we're

    walking on


    there are many musical notes,


    which are not arranged randomly.


    If we put them together,


    it would be the popular song,


    "The Waves of Gulangyu".


    That is to say


    we're walking on a music score?

    韩佳: 可以这么说。

    You may say so.


    But can you sing "The Waves

    of Gulangyu"?


    It must be very melodic.

    韩佳: 这个我也不会。

    No, I can't sing it either.


    Well, let me take you to

    a place,


    where you'll definitely hear

    the song.




    There are so many pianos here!


    Yes indeed.


    Here it is the Gulangyu Piano Museum.


    On display here are over 90


    world-famous vintage pianos


    and more than 60 piano lamp-stands.


    I have a hunch that


    it's going to be an eye-opener

    for me.


    Come on. Tell me in detail.




    Look, that is a Steinway piano,


    made in 1864.


    80% of it was handmade.


    I heard that


    making such a piano required

    400 workmen


    working for nine months to a year.


    Many pianists


    dream of owning such a piano.


    Isn't "mengxiang" a noun?


    Why did you use it as a verb?


    "Mengxiang" can also be

    used as a verb,


    meaning to dream of, or fervently

    hope for something.


    So "mengxiang" here is a verb


    that means to dream of, or

    fervently hope for something.


    For example, I always dream

    of being a singer.


    Let me sing you a couple

    of lines.


    How do you think of

    my singing?


    Han Jia, you played so well!


    What kind of piano is it?


    This is a Steinway automatic


    piano made in Australia.


    It's a dual-purpose piano.


    You can play it with your hands.


    If you can't play it with

    your hands,


    you can also play it with your

    feet just like me.


    I feel as if you were a magician.




    Actually there are


    also many other famous and

    expensive pianos here


    which we have never seen before.


    What are we waiting for?


    Let's enjoy them together.



    Gulangyu is also dubbed the Island of Music.

    漫步岛上 随时都可听到悠扬的琴声

    Here the sounds piano playing can be

    heard at any time.


    Here is a kingdom of pianos


    and a world music.


    The beautiful tunes we hear reflect


    people's deep love for life.


    Han Jia, this tune is very melodic.


    What is its title?


    This is just "The Waves

    of Gulangyu".


    I've finally heard it.


    Very good.


    Good tune, good performance

    and good piano!


    That's for sure.


    It is the biggest grand piano


    in this museum.


    Speaking of pianos,


    we cannot but mention


    the museum's showpiece.


    The museum's showpiece?




    this is the so-called showpiece

    of the museum.


    All the pianos in this room


    were contributed by a gentleman

    called Hu Youyi.


    And he had this piano made

    to order


    specifically for this museum.


    Look, the patterns on the piano


    are all animals and plants peculiar

    to Australia.


    And they are all made of Australian

    fine wood


    and inlaid by hand.




    let's not just pay attention to

    the pianos.


    How about today's award-winning question?




    that's it for today.


    Don't forget to continue to

    be with us


    tomorrow at the same time


    for the Happy Journey across China.


    Of course, also don't forget

    our slogan.

    合: 学说中国话,朋友遍天下!

    Learn Chinese and make friends everywhere!


    See you tomorrow.
