(b 1952 )

Qu Xiaosong was born in Guiyang, Guizhou Province, where he spent his childhood in a farming community. By 1972 he had managed to teach himself the violin well enough to play that instrument and the viola in the Guizhou Peking Opera Orchestra. In 1978 he entered the composition class of the Central Conservatory in Beijing and after graduation in 1983 joined the teaching staff there, while assuming responsibility as one of the editors of the journal People’s Music.

In 1982 Qu won first prize in the International A. Tcherepnin Competition, going on to win further awards in subsequent years. His compositions include a cello concerto and a percussion concerto, works for solo violin and for solo flute and orchestra and chamber music.
