ISBN: 88 222 5489 9
Anno: 2006
Editore: Leo S. Olschki Editore, Firenze

Il
volume, articolato nelle due sezioni “Estetica e teorizzazione” e
“Rituale e contemporaneità”, raccoglie otto saggi sulla musica cinese
che condividono un saldo approccio interculturale. Oltre a presentare i
risultati delle loro più recenti ricerche, gli autori tengono anche
conto del vivace dibattito che si tenne a San Giorgio in occasione
della “7th International Conference of the European Foundation for
Chinese Music Research (CHIME)”, organizzata alcuni anni fa in
collaborazione con l’Istituto “Venezia e l’Oriente”.
