HSIAO Tyzen was born in Kaohsiung in 1938. He is a composer. His mother, HSIAO Lin Xue-Yun, was a pianist and was among the first students to study in Japan, so HSIAO was exposed to Western church music and Western classical music from a very early age. His mother started teaching him piano at the age of five. Influenced by HSU Tsang-Houei, he eventually focused more on composing than piano performance. HSIAO Tyzen emigrated to the US in 1977. He endeavored to combine Taiwanese music with Western music. His most famous works include “The Sojourner,” “Do Not Reject Taiwan,” and “Returning to the Homeland.”
