"The Moon is High" is a famous Chinese traditional music, which is said to be passed from the Tang Dynasty. In the 《String Cable Notes》 compiled in 1814 by Rong Zhai, the set ensemble score of "The Moon is High" was collected. The original notes say: "It’s said Emperor Xuanzong of Tang visited the moon palace, heard some nice sounds and recorded them." ，《The Pipa Score》 edited by Hua Qiuping in 1818 also collected this piece, adding several sub-subjects.
"The Moon is High" is elegant and exquisite, with antique flavor, gentle and beautiful. In 1991, the composer adapted the piece for pipa with orchestra concerto, adding new air and good taste to the original music.
