Du Yun


Composer Du Yun Bridges Culture, Language and Time

To say that Du Yun works at the intersection of opera, orchestral music, theatre, cabaret, and any number of musical styles makes it seem as though she is a passive observer of these forms. In actuality, she is the intersection—a nexus of creativity that dives deep into traditional forms to deconstruct their rules, find the universality of their meaning, adapt them to modern audiences and reflect her profound social conscience. Her work has garnered her a Pulitzer Prize, a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Grammy nomination and, more recently, a grant from The Hermitage Artist Retreat, which hosted a virtual program last Friday in which Du Yun introduced her work with her Future Tradition initiative.
