Marie-Agnès Nataf

(born in France), composer. Before opting exclusively for music, she studied  in parallel mathematics and music. She chose a comprehensive approach as diverse as possible to the music, and particularly enjoyed  the teaching of Narcis Bonet. She examined in depth piano, chamber music, analysis, harmony, and also flute, counterpoint and conducting. As a pianist, she won the 1st prize in piano and chamber music at the Conservatoire d'Orsay, the gold medal at the Ecole Nationale de Cachan, and the performance degree at the Ecole Normale de Musique of Paris - class of Germaine Mounier. For composition, she worked with Narcis Bonet, Yoshihisa Taira, Edith Canat of Chizy. She was admitted in 1995 to SACEM, and consequently got assistance in the first public performance for the creation of her works. In 2001, during the creation of Révolte sans paroles, she was invited to give a lecture on all of her work. In April 2002, her melodies, selected through an international competition, were given in concert in New York by all North / South Consonance. In 2012, her Bartoquades were selected by competition to be on the list of works proposed by the FFEM exams of second cycle and edited by online Editions Go. Currently, a publishing project of her work is in progress with Paul Wehage, publisher of La Fabrique Musique Music (Musik Fabrik).
