Liv og musik

Aya Yoshida is a Japanese composer, born in Kobe, Japan in 1992. She began composing at the age of 6 under the guidance of Mrs.Yasuko Osato. She graduated from Toho Gakuen School of Music in Tokyo under the tutelage of composition lecturer Kenya Masakado and Prof.Masaki Norikura in 2014. She has also studied composition theory and classical piano performance with Prof. Masaki Norikura. She's trained in violoncello and classical vocal with lecturer Yoko Hasegawa and lecturer Kei Yonashiro during her time in Japan. In 2014 she moved to Copenhagen, Denmark where she completed her postgraduate studies in composition with Niels Rosing Schow and Jeppe Just Christensen at The Royal Danish Academy of Music.

Her works have been performed in Japan and Europe by diverse range of soloists, ensembles and orchestras, including performances by Curious Chamber Players in Viitasaari, Finland (2013), by Arditti Quartet (2014) and by Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra (2016) in Copenhagen, Denmark. (The orchestra score “Double-face” was published by Edition-S.)

Moreover Aya just had her very first opera “Skyggen (The Shadow)” premiered in Copenhagen, Denmark on 16th and 17th November 2017 to celebrate the 150th anniversary for the diplomatic friendship between Japan and Denmark, following the official event of the Japanese Embassy in Denmark and Herthe Danish Ministry of Culture.

She has also participated in workshops and festivals in Japan and Europe e.g. with Eric Tanguy and Peter Ablinger. In addition to this, Aya has worked with a number of singer songwriters on arrangements, compositions and recordings and has performed alongside them at concerts, events and live performances.

Aya is often inspired by fashion when she composes her works and her works’ titles are often coming from fashion terms, for example, Polka dots, Tone on Tone Check, and Pointed toe.
