Pressestimmen

...this book does well to frame the reader's understanding of Chou's music within a cross-cultural and historical framework. In foregrounding human agency, Chang negotiates Chou's multifaceted roles and his ethical contribution to society in a rapidly globalizing world. Notes: The Quarterly Journal of the Music Library Association, March 2007 Chou Wen-Chung is an important composer who deserves much more attention, and I hope that Chang's book will lead to more performances of and scholarship on Chou's music. Chou Wen-Chung: The Life and Work of a Contemporary Chinese-Born American Composer is...an imformative volume with many significant ideas. -- Spring 2008 American Music He was supposed to be a civil engineer, but sometimes music does not allow that sort of thing. Chou Wen-Chung had no intention of pursuing his career as an engineer when he came to America in 1946. He already knew his real mission, and in the following years he was able to combine both his heritage of birth and heritage of choice in unique images and ideas from both the East and the West. Chang (music, Northwestern Illinois U.) provides an able biography as well as comprehensive musical and cultural analyses of Chou's compositions. He includes descriptions of Chou's studies of ancient Chinese musical forms and philosophy, facsimiles of Chou's working papers, and a range of photographs of Chou at work with a wide circle of friends and colleagues. Chang includes lists of Chou's compositions, recordings, and performances. Reference and Research Book News
