S.-W. Oh
Seung-Won Oh (1969), a native of South Korea, is rapidly establishing her name as a composer with an individual voice. She is the recipient of many prestigious fellowships and awards, and has received commissions from ensembles and festivals including the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (UK), Transit Festival (BE) and the festival of the Tanglewood Music Centre (US) and November Music (NL). Music critic Mirjam Zegers writes, ‘Oh connects East and West, vibrant motion and stillness, pure sound and ritual theatre, stratified structures and transparency.’ Her music has been further described as being ‘…exciting… refined and sharply cut’ (De Volkskrant), and the Cleveland Plain Dealers said, she ‘brought Asian sensitivity and meditation’. In 2022 she received the Kees van Baaren Price for her requiem YeonDo (2020) inspired by a Korean catholic prayer for the souls in purgatory. ‘This music-theatrical work is an overwhelming experience, a symbolic musical ceremony’, the jury wrote.
