(b 1958 )

Michel Lysight (1958-) received first prizes in harmony, counterpoint, fugue, music history, music pedagogy and bassoon, as well as degrees in music theory, chamber music, and conducting (Royal Conservatory of Brussels) and a first prize for composition (Royal Conservatory of Mons). The discovery of musicians such as Steve Reich and Arvo Pärt was essential for his personal language and has made him one of the figureheads of the « New Consonant Music » trend. His catalogue includes some one hundred works including chamber, orchestral, concerto, and vocal genres, most of which have been recorded on CD. His Clarinet Concerto was performed in Moscow in 2005 by Ronald Van Spaendonck and his Concerto for bassoon and string orchestra was performed by Pierre Olivier Martens at the 2008 Schleswig Holstein Musikfestival. Michel Lysight is Professor at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and was Composer-in-Residence at the Paris Conservatory ‘Darius Milhaud’ in 2008–2009.
