Corentin Boissier has been composing with musical scores since he was 6 years old. Aged 9, he is discovered by the composer Thierry Escaich: « He already owns true qualities that will make him an accomplished musician. He already has a genuine sense of harmonic color, of rythmic invention and of renewal of thematic material. All these qualities show an open-minded spirit indicating a real gift for composition ».
He studied at the CRR of Paris in the Specialized Classes of Musical Writing and Orchestration where he got both Diplomas of Musical Studies (DEM) "With Highest Distinction". Since 2015 he is studying at the National Superior Conservatory of Music (CNSM) of Paris in the cursus « Master of Superior Musical Writing » where he got several prizes; among them: his Prize of Harmony "With Highest Distinction" and his Prize of Counterpoint "With Unanimous Highest Distinction".
Eager to write a directly accessible classical music, Corentin Boissier composed to date more than twenty works in a neo-romantic spirit. His ballade for alto saxophone and piano From Midnight to Dawn is premiered during the 2014 Musical Festival of Bagnac-sur-Célé by the duo Christine Marchais and Marc Sieffert. His encounter with the young several-award-winning pianist Philippe Hattat results in the performances of his Piano Sonata No. 1 « Romantica », his Double Toccata, his concert piece Solitude as well as three of his 24 Preludes to Travel. His three pieces for piano Romantic Young Ladies are recorded and uploaded on YouTube by the Italian concert pianist Annarita Santagada. His Glamour Concerto, version for solo piano, is recorded in 2016 in Quebec by the concert pianist Minna Re Shin. The Aria of Past Times is successively performed by the soprano Sayuri Araida, the baritone Aurélien Gasse, the harmonicist Claude Saubestre, the flutist Iris Daverio and the cellist Eric Tinkerhess, who also gives the world premiere of the Sonata for Cello and Piano with the composer at the piano.
Interested in different sides of musical writing, Corentin Boissier is also active as an orchestrator and arranger. Notably, his orchestration of the 9th of Alfredo Casella’s Nine Pieces for piano op. 24 is performed in concert by the Orchestra of the Gardiens de la Paix in 2016 at the Church « Saint-Joseph des Nations »; his orchestration of Debussy’s Passepied is performed in concert in the Auditorium Marcel Landowski in Paris; his arrangement of the jazz standard Caravan, written for the Local Brass Quintet, is performed live in the Musée de l’Orangerie, in Paris, in 2017. About his orchestration of Francis Poulenc’s Humoresque, the composer Nicolas Bacri wrote: « Congratulations for your orchestration. It’s very well rendered and perfectly in the style ».
In order to make available to a large audience little-known post-romantic works of the XXth and XXIst centuries, Corentin Boissier runs on YouTube the cultural musical channels collectionCB, collectionCB2, CB3, CB4 & CB5 (more than 2,200 uploads to date). He also published on the web his « Ideal Discotheque of more than 1,700 orchestral works of feelings »; the famous American music critic Walter Simmons agreed to be the dedicatee.
In February 2018 his Piano Sonata No. 2 « Appassionata » was premiered by concert pianist Célia Oneto Bensaid at the Salle Cortot, in Paris. A video recording, made in studio, has been uploaded on YouTube.
