China: Landmarks

About this playlist

The New Culture Movement of the early 1900s exposed the music of China to significant western influence – think orchestration and performance style as well as the introduction of new instruments. However, traditional themes rooted in oriental legends, myth and folktales are not lost. Contemporary Chinese composers are progressive and experimental while crafting music that acknowledges their cultural roots. Today, China embraces its unique music notation system and orchestras filled with traditional instruments.
