Man-Ching Donald Yu (b.1980) is a prolific and versatile composer whose music has been actively performed internationally. The style of his recent music is characterized by the blending of post-impressionistic gestures, micropolyphonic techniques, and Chinese colors while being acclaimed by Fanfare Magazine as "forming an arresting and personal intermixing of tonal and atonal languages, with the musical colors and gestures of his native country infiltrating the mix.” Dr. Yu has composed over hundreds scores and his compositional oeuvre ranges from instrumental, vocal and chamber works to opera, choral and symphonic works. Most of the pieces have been frequently and actively performing internationally at various events, festivals, and conferences throughout the North and South America, Asia, and Europe including the recent 17th International Festival of Modern Art: Two Days and Two Nights of New Music at the Odessa Philharmonic Theater, the 7th Malta International Spring Festival at the Manoel Theatre, etc. In 2013 fall, his Second Symphony “World” for chorus and orchestra was premiered by the Uzhgorod Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus at the Uzhgorod Philharmonic Hall. Yu's music has been published by Edizioni Sconfinarte in Italy, Helm & Baynov Verlag in Germany, Scherzo Editions in Netherlands and Albany Records.
