Western song reached China approximately 4 centuries in the past, with the coming of Christian missionaries, but basically in the final century has chinese language track absorbed its effect. As China and the West demonstrates, the emergence of “Westernized” tune from China—concurrent with the technological advances that experience made worldwide tradition commonly accessible—has now not validated a famous presence within the West.

China and the West brings jointly essays on centuries of Sino-Western musical trade by way of musicologists, ethnomusicologists, and song theorists from around the globe. It opens with a glance at theoretical methods of previous reviews of musical encounters and a complete survey of the intercultural and cross-cultural theoretical frameworks—exoticism, orientalism, globalization, transculturation, and hybridization—that tell those essays. half I makes a speciality of the particular encounters among chinese language and ecu musicians, their tools and associations, and the compositions encouraged via those encounters, whereas half II examines theatricalized and mediated East-West cultural exchanges, which frequently drew on stereotypical tropes, leading to performances extra artistic than exact. half III appears to be like on the musical language, sonority, and themes of “intercultural” compositions by way of jap and Western composers. Essays partly IV deal with reception reports and view the ways that modifications are articulated in musical discourse by means of actors serving diverse reasons, even if self-promotion, advertisement advertising, or modes of nationalistic—even propagandistic—expression. The volume’s broad bibliography of secondary resources should be valuable to students of track, modern chinese language tradition, and the globalization of culture.
