(b 1928 )

The Chinese composer Du Ming-xin was born in 1928 in the province of Hubei. His early studies were in Chongqing, but he later moved to Shanghai, a centre of musical influence. In the 1950s Du Ming-xin studied further in Russia, and became a professor of the Central Conservatory in Beijing.

Du Ming-xin’s compositions include a share in the famous ballet score The Mermaid, written in collaboration with Wu Zu-qiang, and in The Red Detachment of Women.

He also composed film sound-tracks, of which The Savage Land and She Died Alone are widely known. In 1982 his Violin Concerto and The Goddess of River Luo were given their first performance in Hong Kong by Takako Nishizaki and the Hong Kong Philharmonic under Kenneth Jean. Several of Du Mingxin’s composition students have already made names for themselves in China, Hong Kong and the rest of Southeast Asia.
