" Falling Flowers Coloring the Green" is a traditional 68 panel pipa music, the score was first found in Jiangyin old manuscripts inscribed as "12 text panels," with “Falling Flowers Coloring the Green” one of them. In the early 20th century, Shen Zhao Zhou of Haimen Chongmin collected this piece into his compilation of "Yingzhou Ancient Tunes", and this piece was seen as one of the representative traditional music of Haimen Chongmin. In the 1920s, the music was spread over China after being reorganized and processed by Mr. Liu Tianhua.
" Falling Flowers Coloring the Green" describes the aloofness from worldly affairs chaste reflecting from the scenery while pines and cypress standing arrogantly in cold snow.
In 1993, the composer adapted the music into chamber music with percussion accompaniment based on Mr. Cao Anhe’s performing score, at young pipa performer Yangjing’s invitation. The theme becomes more colorful and vivid in contrast with sounds of percussion instruments of gongs, vibraphone, marimba.
