Chinese Composers

"I am in awe at how Tan Dun has bridged avant-garde and indigenous music to create work that has a distinctive, compelling voice. He makes me feel proud to be Chinese, even though my 'Chinese-ness' is complicated by my birthright as an American," says Byron Au Yong. (The 33-year-old composer was born in Pittsburgh.)
