About

Thierry Lancino’s background includes extensive periods of research at IRCAM and elsewhere, but his recent work concentrates on a lyrical and bold freedom of style embracing ideas of both seduction and spirituality.

Inspired by a scene of historical impact, his Prelude and Death of Virgil dramatizes the demise of a daunting genius. Lancino writes of his Violin Concerto that his imagination was fired by ‘the thought of a little piece of wood (in reality a 1704 Stradivarius), played by Isabelle Faust, confronting a gigantic machine (the full orchestra)’.

Composer Thierry Lancino studied at the University of Poitiers and Conservatoire de Paris where he received the Prix de composition and elecroacoustics (1972–1977). At Stanford University he pursued his musical research and became a specialist in computer sound synthesis. In 2007, he was awarded the prestigious Koussevitzky Music Foundations Commission. If Lancino’s creative life was first dedicated to experimenting with sound phenomena - artistically and scientifically - he has been focusing more lately on lyrical, colourful and bold writing, with a freedom of style that embraces both seduction and spirituality.
