Zhou Long was born in Beijing in 1953. Following graduation from the Central Conservatory in 1983, was appointed composer-in-residence with the China National Broadcasting Symphony. Zhou has received fellowships from the NEA, and the Guggenheim and Rockefeller Foundations, the Mary Cary Trust and the Aaron Copland Fund for Music. He has been the recipient of commissions from the Koussevitzky and the Fromm Music Foundations, Meet the Composer, Chamber Music America, and ensembles around the world.

During the 2008–09 season, Zhou has been working on a flute concerto for the California Pacific and Singapore Symphonies, a new chamber work for PRISM Saxophone Quartet with Chinese instruments, and will start his first opera co-commissioned by the Opera Boston and Beijing Music Festival, to be given its première in 2010. He is a professor at the Conservatory of the University of Missouri-Kansas City. His works have been recorded on many major labels; this is his first Naxos release.
