“150 Years of Modern Japanese Music”
This event has ended.
In the second half of the 19th century, a new era for Japanese music began as the result of contact with modern Western culture. With the Meiji Restoration, a new government actively introduced Western music into Japan’s education system in an attempt to fashion music ‘appropriate’ for a modern nation. This exhibition plays back the tumultuous changes undergone by modern Japanese music as it progressed in step with the times over one and a half centuries. Based on holdings in the Archives of Modern Japanese Music, Meiji Gakuin University Library, and augmented by materials loaned by private collectors, the exhibition is curated to give a dynamic, multi-dimensional view of cultural history with a focus on music in Japan after the nation came out of isolation.
