By the end of the nineteenth century, after a long period during which the weakness of China became ever more obvious, intellectuals began to go abroad for new ideas. What emerged was a 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.
