 Update me on new releases by Xu

Shuya Xu (b5/12/1961)

Born in May 1961 in Changchun, north-east China, Xu Shuya entered the composition and conducting department of the Shanghai Conservatory of Music in 1978 and studied with renowned composers Zhu Jian’er and Ding Shande. Graduating in 1983, he then joined the department as a young faculty member. In 1988, he won an art scholarship from the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and was sent to Paris by the Chinese Ministry of Culture to pursue his studies.

In 1989 Xu was awarded the Excellent Prize of the senior composition class (masters degree) of the École Normale de Musique de Paris. In the same year, he was also admitted into the senior composition class of the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris (CNSMDP), studying with Ivo Malec, Alain Bancquart, Gérard Grisey, Betsy Jolas and Laurent Cuniot. He also took part in masterclasses with Karlheinz Stockhausen, Franco Donatoni and Klaus Huber. Xu was awarded the 1992 Premier Prix of his composition class with ‘unanimous approval’, and again in 1994 as a doctoral student. He was enrolled then in the same year in the doctoral class of the Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique (IRCAM) of the Centre Pompidou for one year, and settled in Paris.
