The last of China's literati : the music, poetry, and life of Tsar Teh-yun by Bell Yung( )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this biography of Tsar Teh-yun, centenarian poet, calligrapher and qin master, Bell Yung tells the story of a life steeped in the refined arts faithful to the traditional way of the Chinese literati. Set in the two cities of Shanghai and Hong Kong, this book recounts the experiences of an individual who lived through war, displacement, exile, and unrequited longing for home and for a style of living lost forever. Yet Madame Tsar sustained, as one of its last exemplars, much of that style of living despite being a woman in the largely male world of the refined arts." "The author weaves a picture of an extraordinary but also tragic figure: extraordinary as daughter, wife, mother, and a celebrated musician, poet, and calligrapher; tragic as a member of the literati exiled from Shanghai to Hong Kong and always longing for the lost world of the refined arts. Known particularly for her accomplishment as a teacher and performer on the qin - instrument par excellence of the literati. The book delves into her teaching method and musical style to a degree rarely found in the literature of its kind, and is thus an important contribution to musicological study."--Jacket
Understanding Charles Seeger, pioneer in American musicology( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A giant in the development of American musicology, Charles Seeger was a scholar-musician active in practically all areas of musical endeavor: performance, composition, theory, criticism, pedagogy, and musicology. This wide-ranging collection provides a historical context for Seeger's ideas by investigating his writings on music, musical research, and the responsibility of the musician and musicologist to society."--Jacket
Cantonese opera : performance as creative process by Bell Yung( Book )

11 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Music and cultural rights( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection illustrates the ways in which music--as a cultural practice, a commercial product, and an aesthetic form--has become enmeshed in debates about human rights, international law, and struggles for social justice. These essays examine how interpretations of cultural rights vary across societies; how definitions of rights have evolved; and how rights have been invoked in relation to social struggles over cultural access, use, representation, and ownership. The individual case studies demonstrate how musical aspects of cultural rights play out in specific cultural contexts, including the Philippines, China, Hawaii, Peru, Ukraine, and Brazil
Harmony and counterpoint : ritual music in Chinese context( Book )

13 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume of nine essays draws together leading scholars in anthropology, social history, musicology, and ethnomusicology to address the roles and functions of music in the Chinese ritual context. How does music, one of a constellation of essential performative elements in almost all rituals, empower an officiant, legitimate an officeholder, create a heightened state of awareness, convey a message, or produce a magical outcome, a transition, a transformation? After an introduction by the volume editors, Bell Yung proposes a theoretical framework for dealing with Chinese ritual sound
The flower princess : a Cantonese opera = [Di nu hua] by Disheng Tang( )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonetheless, the most memorable feature of the volume as a whole is the tragic, yet transcendent, story of the star-crossed couple. It is a tale fraught with love and loyalty, piety and pathos, one which anyone who reads will not easily forget." VICTOR H. MAIR, University of Pennsylvania
