  • Yandi Yang


(b Shanghai, Oct 16, 1933; d October 17, 2011). Chinese composer. She began her musical activities in her early teens and entered the Beijing Central Conservatory of Music in 1951. Her graduate composition, Gada Meilin, a symphonic poem based on the life of the Mongolian hero, is regarded as a successful synthesis of folk music material with Western techniques. Between 1956 and 1980, she lived in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, teaching composition at the Inner Mongolian Arts School; her works from this period were based on Mongolian folk music. In 1981 she moved to Beijing, working as a composer for the Beijing Music and Dance Company. Her music has a strong personal style, with flowing, extended melodies and colourful orchestration.
