HAINU TAN
Honorable Mention in the 2nd Opus Dissonus Composition Competition (2016)


****************************


                    

                    Hainu Tan's musical style emanating from the interstices of eastern and western cultures that creates an irresistible and engrossing global conversation.
                    Critically acclaimed for a “descriptive and highly innovative” musical voice by the Portland Press Herald, Tan’s musical canon includes the artful and imaginative melding of xylophone, vibraphone, marimba, and cymbals in her acclaimed “Hunting Fireflies”; flute, clarinet, violin, cello, and piano in the entrancing “Sound of Wind”; trumpet and trombone in the inspirational “Ballade pour L'Agneau”; orchestral work in the monumental and spectacular “Rhapsody in Red” from her extensive list of compositions, which may well soon be lauded as contemporary classics.
                    Her works included herein merits not just listeners’ attention but their immersion into Tan’s unique musical milieu, for an experience praised by The American Prize as “virtuosic.”
                    She studied under professor Samuel Adler of The Juilliard School of Music at the Freie Universität Berlin, earned degrees from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston and the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing.
