By the end of the nineteenth century, Chinese culture had fallen into a stasis, and intellectuals began to go abroad for new ideas. What emerged was an exciting musical genre that C. C. Liu terms "new music." With no direct ties to traditional Chinese music, "new music" reflects the compositional techniques and musical idioms of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century European styles. Liu traces the genesis and development of "new music" throughout the twentieth century, deftly examining the social and political forces that shaped "new music" and its uses by political activists and the government.

Professor Liu Ching-chih is currently Visiting Professor of the Department of Music Education at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music, Hon Research Fellow of the Hong Kong Institute for Humanities and Social Sciences (including the Centre of Asian Studies), Hon Fellow of the Research Institute of Music of China’s Academy of Arts and Hon Fellow of the Research Institute of Music of the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing. He also served as Visiting Scholar at St Antony’s College, Oxford, the University of Heidelberg and leading universities in Beijing, Shanghai, Wuhan, Guangzhou, Jinan, Lanzhou, and Qingdao.
