dc.description.abstractThis study chronicles the development of piano music in China through seven representative works. An important aspect of this research will be to evaluate how and to what extent the repertoire reflects the diverse influences of Western music, traditional Chinese culture, and Chinese politics. Due to the tumultuous social history of modern China, political factors have dictated and continue to dominate cultural aesthetics in a unique way. As we have seen, at some period, styles closely conformed to the political ideology. When the political climate was freer, however, the composer's creative ideology was allowed to be expressed more openly, and the cultural exchange with the West was freer. Although many Chinese pieces are not of high quality, a number of Chinese composers have successfully devoted themselves to integrating Western musical techniques with their own rich cultural background.
