Drs. Allsop and Lindorff will interweave musical performance with narrative as they explore the letters and music of Teodorico Pedrini, an Italian composer and missionary at the Chinese imperial court from 1711-1746. As a prelude, they will discuss the musical contributions of Tomás Pereira, the Portuguese Jesuit who preceded Pedrini in the role of imperial music master. Both missionaries contributed to the Lülü Zhengyi Xubian, a Western music treatise within a Chinese theoretical study and a truly unique East-West collaboration.
