Jean-Louis Agobet

The French composer studied at the Conservatoire de Lyon. He is currently professor of music composition at the Conservatory of Bordeaux, a position he accepted after serving as professor of composition at the Conservatory of Caen from 2008 to 2011. In 1999 a first CD of chamber music and ensemble pieces was released with the group Itinéraire under the direction of Mark Foster for the Label MFA-Radio France/Harmonia Mundi (awarded the Choc prize from Le Monde de la Musique). In 2005, the Strasbourg Philharmonic Orchestra directed by François-Xavier Roth dedicated a CD of orchestral works to him, released by Timpani, which won him a prize from the Charles Cros Academy. The following year this CD was voted Classical Recording of the Year in the 2006 Victoires de la Musique Classique.

"There is also much virtuosity within these works, with rhythm and orchestral colour playing a vital role. Structure is strong - any weakness in compositional technique would be easily and immediately noticeable in this idiom...Supporters of contemporary music who may have not heard any music from this composer should certainly give this disc a try - thoroughly recommended. " Adam Binks about Timpani.
