Mayako Kubo

is a composer of Japanese descent who is artistically connected to the European legacy and the contemporary music movement. She has written about 130 works in almost all genres. Opera holds special significance for Mayako Kubo. The world premiere of Rashomon in Graz, Austria, 1996 and of the Japanese version in Tokyo 2002 confirmed her reputation as Japan’s most important female composer.

„My goal is to create something that can survive the 21st century. Otherwise, my music would be meaningless, and I might as well stop composing.“
Mayako Kubo
