“I am dreaming of the day when the so-called ‘outliers’ are treated as the norm, the unthinkable as the status quo.” -Du Yun
“Ultimately, in her own work and as a curator, Du Yun hopes to move the dial forward on what it means to be cutting-edge.”
Congratulations to Hilary Hahn and Cory Smythe, winning in the category of the Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance!

MATA is a not-for-profit organization that commissions, presents, and supports the music of a wide array of young composers from around the globe. Founded by Philip Glass, Eleonor Sandresky, and Lisa Bielawa in 1996, MATA presents a week-long festival of music by composers under age forty each spring in New York City. Each festival presents up to thirty works by young composers, at least three to four of which are newly commissioned. To date, MATA has commissioned seventy works, and has presented over three-hundred performances of pieces by young composers.
“Auch das Stück der chinesischen Komponistin und Performerin Du Yun aus 2011 ist trotz der scheinbar extravaganten Besetzung ein geradezu intimes Kammermusikwerk. Andreas Steiner demonstrierte, welch feine differenzierte Klänge dem machtvollen Tam Tam zu entlocken sind.”
(Translation: The piece by the Chinese composer and performer Du Yun from 2011, despite the seemingly extravagance casts an almost intimate chamber music. Andreas Steiner demonstrated what a fine differentiated sounds to elicit a powerful Tam Tam.)
