(Bolivia, b. 1958)
Agustín Fernández is a Bolivian composer, now resident in the United Kingdom, where he teaches composition at Newcastle University.
He was born in Cochabamba in 1958. Following studies in his native city at Instituto Laredo, he became a pupil of Alberto Villalpando in La Paz, and of Takashi Iida and Akira Ifukube in Japan. In Tokyo he also studied the violin under the eminent Takeshi Kobayashi.
In 1984 he settled in the UK and studied for an MMus at Liverpool University and a PhD at City University, London.
I write concert and stage music seeking to engage in a dialogue with the classical tradition, while continuing to absorb the experiences of the recent past to formulate viable directions for the future informed by the popular musics I have come into contact.
