鴻飛1
Hong Fei
   
This melody, the fourth of five surviving from Wusheng Qinpu (1453), is generally said to have been created by the handbook's author/compiler, the Lazy Immortal. However, there is no commentary accompanying the present tablature (the only one with commentary is #3 Xian Shan Yue), and there is evidence that at least some other melodies may have been copied from earlier tablature.4

Literary references suggest the theme of the melody concerns escaping the trammels of society.

No further information as yet.
