Synopsis: This work examines the multiple and conflicting interpretations created around the life and music of the blind folk musician Abing (1893-1950). Abing is a household name in China, but despite the central place he holds in Chinese music, he is little known, and his music rarely heard, abroad. This detailed study of Abing, and the accompanying CD compilation of his most well-known works, reveal much both about this unjustly neglected composer, and about the recreation of traditional music in contemporary China. Particular attention is given to the problematic category of the musical `work' in a tradition which relies heavily on improvisation and creative reworking of material; Abing's music has also taken strikingly different shapes since his death, notably in arrangements, some involving Western instruments, which have adapted his music to changing tastes and ideological trends, both in mainland China, and in Taiwan and overseas. Dr. Jonathan P.J. Stock is Lecturer in Music at the University of Durham. Contains audio CD

Review: Welcome addition to books about Chinese folk and popular music... well-researched study. CHOICE Jonathan Stock has make his subject matter both relevant and accessible. His analysis is outstanding and it is supported by painstaking documentation of his resources. Stock argues his case cogently, documents it minutely, and situates it firmly within the broader Western academic tradtion. A well-written and clearly-presented study. MUSIC AND LETTERS Contains solid research and is elegantly presented with rich references...Stock's book sheds new light on our understanding of Abing's creative process as a folk musician and makes a significant contribution to the study of Chinese music. 1998 YEARBOOK FOR TRADITIONAL MUSICBR> An elegant, engaging and cohesive narrative...The book is highly worthy, and abounds with intelligent writing and analysis. BRITISH JOURNAL OF ETHNOMUSICOLOGY A rather juicy story...fascinating insights into the relationship between politics and musicology in the PRC. CHIME
