Music in China Experiencing Music, Expressing Culture Global Music Series; By Frederick Lau Book and CD;182 pages This case-study volume can be used along with the core Global Music Series books, Teaching Music Globally and Thinking Musically (item;803021) for the set of two books, available separately). Each case study book uses the contemporary musical situation as a point of departure, covering historical information and traditions as they relate to the present.This book takes a balanced look at a variety of tradtional and modern genres, including those performed among local and regional folk musicians, in academia, in the media, and on concert stages both inside and outside of China. The author draws on his own extensive fieldwork and performance experience in both mainland China and its diasporic communities to show how the ever-changing Chinese musical tradition takes on particular meanings in China, in overseas communities, and its diverse international settings.Eyewitness accounts of local performances, interview with key performers, illustrations and hands-on listening activities are included. The enclosed 70-minute CD contains 53 examples of the music discussed in the book.Contents:Note on Romanization, Chinese Names, and Chines Cipher NotationCD Track List1. Music of the People2.
