Selected composers include Joji Yuasa\, Toshio Hosokawa\, Michio Kitazume\, Kazuo Fukushima\ , and Misato Mochizuki. \n \n The highlight will be the world premiere of a newly-commissioned work by the composer Ryan Tanaka. The concert will be both a celebration of modern Japanese music and an exploration of cultura l fusion. The selected composers were all trained in the Western classical tradition and are internationally active in the contemporary art music sc ene. Yet each has developed a personal approach to composition that incorp orates a distinct concern with the composer&rsquo\;s national and ethnic i dentity. The myriad ways in which composers address this background in the ir music creates a program of fascinating diversity while showcasing recur ring elements of uniquely Japanese musical aesthetics.
