Abstract

Thinking about Chinese music I am trying to find answers on different questions. 1. What implication on Chinese culture had events in down the history on territory present-day China? 2. What result/from/ syncretism of Chinese music with other phenomena of Chinese culture? 3. What implication on formation of Chinese tonal system had the cyclic principle of tuning? 4. It seems to me the music in Europe reflects an ideal imagination of known world and music change - in some way - according the new recognition of the world. What caused absence of similar evolution in Chinese music? The differences between Chinese and European culture relate to different visions of the category of time, and it has serious consequences in the field of music.
