Maguy Joseph

(born in 1974, Normandie, resident in France), composer. Recorder player, she was a student of Michelle Tellier and Sébastien Marq at the conservatories of the 6th and 7th arrondissements of Paris. She followed the course of composition with Edith Canat de Chizy and Christian Dachez, she met Renaud Gagneux and Georges Aperghis (2003-2009). She studied at the Ecole Normale de Musique Alfred Cortot the orchestral conducting with Dominique Rouits (2008-2009). The events that triggered the act of composing were the listening of  Thrène à la mémoire des victimes d'Hiroshima  of Penderecki and Nuits  of Xenakis at the age of 13. The potential of musical language became a place to explore. The quality of attention and the investment of children of the Conservatory of Roissy-en-Brie in the creation of three pieces of the Les Fables de La Fontaine is a precious memory. The extraction of the inner world of sound to the outside is incredible in each piece.
