Daniel CHUA (Professor) studied music at Cambridge University, as an undergraduate at St. Catharine's College, then as a graduate at St. John's College, where he worked on a music analytical thesis entitled The "Galitzin" Quartets of Beethoven (published by Princeton in 1995). After a year as a Henry Fellow at Harvard, he returned to St. John's as a Research Fellow and later became the Director of Studies in Music there. During this time he worked on his second, more historically orientated, book, Absolute Music and the Construction of Meaning (published by Cambridge in 1999). Before joining The University of Hong Kong as Head of the School of Humanities and Professor of Music, he was the Professor of Music Theory and Analysis at King's College London. In recognition of his work, he was awarded the Royal Musical Association Dent Medal in 2004. Although mostly known as a Beethoven scholar, Chua's research is diverse, ranging from Monteverdi to Stravinsky. It is, however, consistent in as much as it focuses on music's social and ideological meaning. To elicit these meanings, his work combines music analysis and music history with theories from other disciplines (literary theory, critical theory, continental philosophy, history of science, etc.). He is currently working on the ethics of freedom in the music of Beethoven. He is also an editor of Music & Letters.
