Yoritsune Matsudaira

Yoritsune Matsudaira (松平 頼則 Matsudaira Yoritsune?, May 5, 1907, Tokyo, Japan – October 25,[1] 2001 in Tokyo, Japan) was a Japanese composer of contemporary classical music.

Matsudaira was descended, on his father's side of the family, from the Matsudaira clan, related to the Tokugawa clan who ruled Japan as shogun during the Edo Period (specifically from the branch of the family which was enfeoffed at the Hitachi-Fuchū Domain), and on his mother's side of the family from the Fujiwara family, who were court regents from the 7th to the 12th centuries. His style was influenced by gagaku, the ancient court music of Japan. His music has been frequently performed in Europe.

His eldest son, Yoriaki (Yori-Aki) Matsudaira (松平 頼暁) is also a composer.
