Anthony Sylvestre, Composer
My approach to classical music:
“Music is one of the more important joys in my life.
Without music , the world would be so sad ! And more without classical music.
In music, you can feel the full range of emotions of the human being, from joy to sadness, through excitement to quitness, and rage and hope and so on.
I also think that we can feel the heart of the composer in his/her music. Personnaly, I think that as a composer, I reveal a part of myself in my music.
I like to say that my music speaks better than myself. So, if you want to better know me, I invite you to listen to what I do.“
I am a french composer. I began to study the piano when I was 11. I listened to a lot of classical music as a child, hearing tunes created by classical composers such as Chopin, Rachmaninov, Fauré, Puccini, Mahler, Tchaikovsky, and others. I was attracted to symphonic movie soundtracks, drawing inspiration from composers such as John Barry, Hans Zimmer, John Williams, Nobuo Uematsu, and John Debney.
Largely self-taught regarding orchestration, I have composed numerous pieces for piano, for choir and for orchestra. My music for choir has been already sung in France, U.S.A, and Ukraine. The Ave Musica Choir (Ukraine) was the first choir to perform my piece Libera me abroad France frontiers in March 23, 2013.
The Cardinal Singers (Louisville, Kentucky) gave the first performance of my Libera me in the United States during the 2013 University of Louisville New Music Festival. I was honoured to be invited to the 2014 University of Louisville New Music Festival for the premiere of my double choir a cappella work entitled La Promesse. I also love to compose for the piano.
