About this book
Very few books on Korean traditional music have been available in Western languages. In view of the present state, this book attempts to deal with historical matters and other aspects of Korean music and Korean musicology. In fact, this volume is an essay collection of my studies written in English during the last 25 years as a musicologist, which range from as early as an article appearing in the academic journal, Ethnomusicology, in 1973 by the society for Ethnomusicology in USA, to as late as my keynote address at the 2nd International Symposium for Korean Musicology in 1998.
17 chapters are largely divided into three parts. Part One: "Korean Music and Musicology" with six chapters devoted to the state of contemporary Korean traditional music and the development of Korean musicology; Part Two: "Studies in Korean Music History" (five chapters) discusses the major issue in Korean music history; Part Three: "Aspects of Korean Traditional Music" (six chapters) deals with p'ansori, sanjo, and other topics in Korean music.
