The Chinese instrumentarium is unquestionably the largest and most diverse of any civilization, ancient or modern. Inscriptions on tortoise shells and cow bones from more than 3000 years ago recorded various instruments including drums, stone chimes, and panpipes. In this volume, Alan R. Thrasher discusses the evolution of Chinese musical instruments, detailing their construction, regional variations, and role in musical accompaniment.
