The IRINO PRIZE was founded in 1980 in honor of the late Yoshiro Irino, one of the most respected Japanese composers of his generation. The prize is administrated by The Irino Prize Foundation which was established after his death, on June 23,1980, by Mrs. Reiko Takahashi IRINO with the collaboration of renowned composers Maki ISHII, Joji YUASA and Yori-Aki MATSUDAIRA. The IRINO PRIZE is awarded to young composers who explore new directions, and demonstrate innovative creativity. The IRINO prize category alternates yearly, and is given for orchestral works in even years, and chamber works in odd years.
