Traditional Chinese Music formed its own system of rules and characteristics different from that of other countries during the thousands of years' development. No matter when it comes to fundamental musicology concepts such as temperament, scale and mode, or more broadly the pattern characteristics, or even the philosophical basis, cultural tradition and particular thinking mode, there are its own peculiar principles everywhere. This series is trying to organize, combine and discuss the features and characteristics in the morphology, aesthetics and structure of traditional Chinese music. The books here aim at offering a systematic overview of traditional Chinese music to young students, and providing reference materials for researchers in the field.The book is for popular reading introducing musical relics through different periods in Chinese history and some related basic knowledge in this field.
