但是,他們的研究與路向和方法恰恰是與19世紀末歷史音樂學創始人吉爾多·阿德勒(Guildo Adler)所構想的截然不同。

Sound as Music as Culture
Music has long been a topic of interest for scholars in various disciplines.
Their approaches however couldn’t be more different from what the founding father of historical musicology Guildo Adler had envisioned at the end of the nineteenth century.
Initially focusing on style and structure of European classical music, the study of music has come a long way and now includes a range of approaches and perspectives.
This talk focuses on recent developments in the study of music and its implication in and contribution to the study of people, culture, and society.


Frederick Lau is chair and professor of Ethnomusicology and director of the Center for Chinese Music Studies at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
His scholarly interests include a broad range of topics in Chinese, Western, and Asian music and cultures. Apart from publishing books and articles, he is editor of the book series entitled Music and Performing Arts of Asia and the Pacific.
Prior to teaching in Hong Kong, he was professor of music and ethnomusicology at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and California Polytechnic State University.
