I have been trying to read some history of Asian classical music. "Trying" because all I have found so far is a summary. I'll find more. Meanwhile, can anyone recommend a few good CDs with Asian classical music - Byzantium, India, China, Middle East, Persia, Greece (taken from this outline and not, I know, complete). In fact, I saw a comment on one web page that said there is no such thing as classical music in Japan. Now, knowing the definition of "classical".......?
Thank you for some ideas.
