The Western chamber music is essentially different from the music for the traditional Chinese instrumental groups. Of course, they differ in terms of language and content, but also in terms of musical ideology. After the introduction of Western music into China, both musical practices have gradually naturally grown towards one another, evolving into an important new compositional genre taking essential elements and ideas from both. New works in this genre have introduced interesting breakthroughs in form and arrangement as well as exhibited new discoveries of innovative sonic and musical expressions. This lecture will review the development of this new hybrid genre and explore how composers have expressed the unique aesthetic spirit, philosophy and imagery of their cultural traditions.
