黎錦暉 (Li Jinhui)


Li Jinhui (September 5, 1891 – February 15, 1967) was a composer and songwriter born in Xiangtan, Hunan, Qing China. He is often dubbed as the “Father of Chinese popular music“. He created a new musical form with shidaiqu after the fall of the Qing Dynasty—moving away from established musical forms. Although Li’s music was extremely popular, the Chinese Nationalist Party attempted to ban his music. Critics branded his music as “Yellow Music“, a form of pornography, because of its sexual associations and he was branded a “corruptor” of public morals. This kind of popular music was banned in China after the Communist takeover in 1949, and Li was eventually hounded to his death, a victim of political persecution in 1967 during the height of the Cultural Revolution.

阿甫 阿弗夏洛穆夫 (Aaron Avshalomov)


Aaron Avshalomov (RussianАаро́н Авшало́мов; 11 November 1894 – 26 April 1965) was a Russian-born Jewish composer.

Born into a Mountain Jewish family in Nikolayevsk-on-Amur, Russia, Avshalomov was sent for medical studies to Zürich. After the October Revolution in 1917, which made further studies in Europe impossible, his family sent him to the United States. There he married a fellow Russian émigré in San Francisco.

Less than a year later, he chose to return to China, where he entered the world of Shanghai‘s academia and, together with other highly qualified Jewish musicians (i.e., Alfred WittenbergWalter JoachimArrigo Foa, etc.), who had fled the Russian pogroms and revolution, trained a number of young Chinese musicians in classical music, who in turn became leading musicians in contemporary China. Between 1918 and 1947, he worked to create a synthesis of Chinese musical elements and Western techniques of orchestral composition. In 1919, his son, Jacob Avshalomov was born, who became a composer and conductor, too.
