Kongmiao Dacheng Yuezhang Jiang Wenyeh composed in China in 1939 is full of nationality. Jiang used Western orchestration to express the spirit of Chinese elegant music, and it can be regarded as the beginning of his conversion in music style. The purpose of this thesis is to analyze and compare the traditional Confucius’ Temple Music with Jiang’s Kongmiao Dacheng Yuezhang in order to explore how he developed traditional Chinese music. In the first chapter, I divide Jiang’s life into four periods, finding out from his articles how his new music ideas influenced the composition of Kongmiao Dacheng Yuezhang. In the second chapter, I state the background and the motive of Jiang’s composing the work as follows: After attending Confucius’ ceremony in Beijing, he started to study many kinds of ancient Chinese books, tried to understand Confucius’ music thoughts thoroughly, modeled himself on Confucius’ spirit of reviving elegant music in Zhou dynasty, and at last finished composing Kongmiao Dacheng Yuezhang. In the third chapter, I analyze Jiang’s work from the track of the traditional Confucius’ Temple Music, and bring up that the difference between the above two is the mobility. In the fourth chapter, according to Jiang’s view mentioned in his articles that the traditional Confucius’ Temple Music aesthetics differed from the Western European’s, I analyze Kongmiao Dacheng Yuezhang on the basis of Jiang’s argument and demonstrate its qualities---the union of men and heaven shown in Confucian school’s music aesthetics and the specialty of the non-person character. Jiang preserved the essence of the traditional Confucius’ Temple Music successfully by means of Western music-composing skills, and realized his ideal of spreading the Chinese elegant music worldwide.
