About this product
- DescriptionAt the turn of the twentieth century, students returning from abroad introduced Beethoven to China. The composer's perseverance in the face of adversity and his musical genius resonated in a nation searching for a way forward. Beethoven remained a durable part of Chinese life in the decades that followed, becoming an icon to intellectuals, music fans and party cadres alike, playing a role in major historical events from the May Fourth Movement to the rmalisation of US-China relations. Jindong Cai, whose love for the musician began during the Cultural Revolution, and culture journalist Sheila Melvin tell the compelling story of Beethoven and the Chinese people.
- Author BiographyJindong Cai is an orchestra conductor and a professor at Stanford University. He is a three-time recipient of the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers award for Adventurous Programming of Contemporary Music.
