(b 1945 )

Younghi-Pagh-Paan was born in 1945 in Cheongju, South Korea, and studied at the Seoul National University, before moving to Germany to study at the Freiburg Musikhochschule on a DAAD scholarship. She won international attention through the performance of her orchestral work Sori at the Donaueschingen Festival in 1980. Her compositions, which seek to renew the nature of Korean musical culture by means of various Western compositional techniques, aroused increasing interest at the most important new music festivals, and in concert series throughout Europe. Younghi-Pagh-Paan has won numerous awards for her output including first prize at the Fifth Composers Seminar in Boswil (Switzerland), the Rostrum of Composers (Unesco, Pads), the City of Stuttgart, the Na‑Pa Music Prize in Korea and the Heidelberg Artists Prize in Germany. She lives in Bremen and Panicale (Italy) and is currently a member of the Akademie der Künste in Berlin and a professor of composition at the Hochschule der Künste in Bremen, where she founded the Atelier Neue Musik which she has directed ever since. In 2006 Younghi-Pagh-Paan was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Seoul National University and the Order of Civil Merit from South Korea.
