PAST EVENTS

mustMEET Composers 2016 | HOSOKAWA

past meets present in contemporary music of Japan

Guest: Toshio Hosokawa composer




"I am searching for a new form of Japanese spiritual culture and music, one through which I can remain true to myself as well as to my origins. We need to examine the Western world again, more carefully, in order to see ourselves objectively and to truly get to know ourselves.”Toshio Hosokawa


Toshio Hosokawa, Japan’s pre-eminent living composer, creates his distinctive musical language from the fascinating relationship between western avant-garde art and traditional Japanese culture. His music is strongly connected to the aesthetic and spiritual roots of the Japanese arts, as well as to those of Japanese court music. During the public meeting he will speak with Gergely Fazekas about his special composing style and there will be extracts of his opera Matzukaze (directed by Sacha Waltz).
