This course explores how Chinese musical lives evolved throughout the twentieth century, reacting to social, cultural, economic, and political changes, as well as interacting with Western nations and cultures. Through a general survey of some representative instrumental works/genres/styles/traditions regarding specific historical contexts (i.e., the “pre-modern” China, the New Culture Movement, the semi-colonial China before the Second Sino-Japanese War, the Mao regime, the Cultural Revolution, and the post-Mao reform era, etc.), it highlights how and why processes of modernization, Westernization, urbanization, nationalism, and globalization were prominent in (re)shaping Chinese people’s appreciation and understanding of music.
