Chen Yi (1953 -     )

Chen Yi composerBorn in Guangzhou, China, Chen Yi is one of the most inventive and dynamic composers of our time. Chen Yi’s vibrant, expertly-crafted music, which transcends cultural and musical boundaries – a kinetic synthesis of Eastern and Western elements – reflects her diverse life experiences, particularly her survival of the Cultural Revolution in China, and her years as concertmaster of the Beijing Opera Orchestra. A prolific composer, her catalog contains works in virtually every genre, including works for traditional Chinese instruments. Chen Yi is the recipient of the prestigious Charles Ives Living Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 2001. She is the Cravens/ Millsap/ Missouri Distinguished Professor at the Conservatory of the University of Missouri-Kansas City, and was elected to the American Academy of Arts & Sciences in 2005. She received her bachelor and master degrees in music composition from the Central Conservatory in Beijing, China, and Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Columbia University in New York. Her composition teachers have included Wu Zu-qiang, Chou Wen-chung, Mario Davidovsky and Alexander Goehr. Chen Yi has served as Composer-in-Residence for the Women’s Philharmonic, the vocal ensemble Chanticleer, Aptos Creative Arts Center - supported by Meet The Composer, and as a member of the composition faculty at Peabody Conservatory. She has received major fellowships and awards from the Guggenheim Foundation, the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Fromm Foundation at Harvard University, the Koussevitzky Music Foundation at the Library of Congress, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Honors include a first prize from the Chinese National Composition Competition, the Lili Boulanger Award, the NYU Sorel Medal Award, the CalArts/Alpert Award, the UT Eddie Medora King Composition Prize, the ASCAP Concert Music Award, the Elise Stoeger Award from Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Friendship Ambassador Award from Edgar Snow Fund, Honorary Doctorates from Lawrence University, Baldwdin-Wallace College, and University of Portland, and a UMKC Kauffman Award in Artistry/Scholarship. She was appointed by the China Ministry of Education to the prestigious three-year Changjiang Scholar Visiting Professor at the Beijing Central Conservatory of Music in 2006. Her music is performed world wide and has received numerous recordings. [please note: Chen is her family name, Yi is her personal name.
