About This Book

Musicians of Asian descent have unusual prominence in concern halls, conservatories and classical music competitions. Mari Yoshihara, Professor of American Studies at the University of Hawai'i, looks into the reasons for this phenomenon. She shows how a confluence of culture, politics and commerce after the war made classical music a staple in middle-class households. With notes, bibliography and index.
