The 20th-century classical music composers (1900-1950) Asia

 

Yamada or Ifukube? Paliashvili or Hajibeyov? It is difficult for inquiring minds to tackle such abundant fields as classical music and opera, covering 10 centuries of history: there are thousands of composers. Making a selection of musicians, such as a “top 10” for example, is a difficult and subjective exercise. A musical selection is often the expression of personal preferences or artistic opinions, very interesting but also very different according to critics or musicologists, or simply influenced by the context: will an English composer not be instinctively privileged by an English critic?

For example: in France, Charles Gounod, a 19th century French composer, is more easily mentioned than the Norwegian Edvard Grieg, who is more recognized in the world.

Timeline of classical music composers, between 1900 and 1950 in Asia

Whoever wants to discover classical music or opera does not always have an experienced music lover, an expert or an educator at his or her side to support and guide him or her in these fields. So : Yamada (Japanese composer and conductor) or Ifukube (Japanese composer) ? Khachaturian (Russian composer) or Garayev (Azerbaijani composer) ? However, the knowledge available about musicians is enormous. It was processed to select the 10, 25, 50... most popular composers around the world, for those living or having lived en Asia, between 1900 and 1950. And this objectively, and for the first time (soClassiQ exclusivity).

Curious to know their most emblematic works? Just a click away to discover them.

The selections of musicians (classical music composers) proposed by soClassiQ are based exclusively on algorithms. The same applies to their works, the performers, the lyrical singers, les orchestras, the conductors and the venues : opera houses, concert halls or festivals.

What about the others? 25, 50 or more?

Summarizing to 10 musician names such a wide and diverse field may seem extreme or too simplistic for those who know classical music and lyrical art well, for those who can easily name 50 or more classical music composers. Terterian, Er, Ali-Zadeh, Tomita, Klemperer, Tariverdiev, Arutiunian...

At this time, soClassiQ has listed more than 18000 composers. So here is a selection of some composers for the years 1900-1950, in Asia, widely recognized around the world:

Some composers to be celebrated very soon

Next month, more than 20 important artists and musicians will be honoured. In June 2020 some of them may celebrate a special anniversary. For others, amateurs and enthusiasts will celebrate the bicentenary of their birth or the fiftieth anniversary of their death for example. Among them, some famous composers:

on 8, Robert Schumann (1810-1856), 210th anniversary (Birth),
on 9, Otto Nicolai (1810-1849), 210th anniversary (Birth),
on 18, Joan Pau Pujol (1570-1626), 450th anniversary (Birth),
on 20, Jehan Alain (1911-1940), 80th anniversary (Death),
on 25, Gustave Charpentier (1860-1956), 160th anniversary (Birth),
...

There are others to discover. And it is not too late to focus on the May 2020 celebrations (40+).

Always good opportunities to discover or deepen, (re)listen, explore the vastness and diversity of classical music...
