Traditional Instrumental Music in Modern China

With Professor Xianyan Wang

The Confucius Institute, 126 Mount Pleasant, Liverpool, L69 3GR

Tuesday 6 March, 12-1pm

Since the early 20th century traditional Chinese music has been challenged by western popular music. The global popularity of western music has had a profound impact upon traditional Chinese music. This has led to a revision of classical Chinese music including the use of traditional instruments and the composition of music, leading to a dramatic change in the formulation of the national orchestra. We will explore the journey from traditional instrumentation to the introduction of a more professional approach to Chinese instrumental music that has become dominant.
