Rezensionen
"This stimulating and thought-provoking essay collection deepens our knowledge of one of the most important periods in contemporary Chinese history. The music and soundscapes of the Cultural Revolution continue to exert influence in creative arenas from contemporary art and film music composition to pop songs and advertising jingles. Listening to China's Cultural Revolution explores not only the historical significance of this musical culture, but also demonstrates that works created during this volatile decade continue to hold a place in the nation's collective memory and to resonant in the lives of individuals." - Nancy Guy, Associate Professor of Music, University of California, San Diego, USA, and author of Peking Opera and Politics in Taiwan "Close attention to aesthetic form sets this volume apart from previous studies, offering technically informed insights into issues such as musical hybridity, cross-genre adaptation, and intercultural musical composition. By attending to the form of Cultural revolution musical productions, rather than simply their political messages, the authors of this volume identify new ways for thinking about Cultural Revolution culture, linking this period with broader artistic questions, as well as historical precedents and legacies." - Emily Wilcox, Assistant Professor of Modern Chinese Studies, University of Michigan, USA
