Michael Lysight Nocturne I


Anna Heller plays Nocturne Nr 1 from the book of Nocturnes by Belgian composer Michael Lysight. Aesthetically, the composer was influenced by repetitive and minimalist music, but not only : a certain “romanticism” is present in his music, because he wants a direct communication with the public and not to compose for an elite. In 1991, he founded the “Michel Lysight Ensemble”, for the interpretation and the recording of his music. He’s also conductor of Nouvelles Consonances, the ensemble for contemporary music at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels.

His catalogue contains around seventy works of all genres (chamber music, orchestra, piano…). All his music belongs to the New Consonant Music. https://www.newconsonantmusic.com/composer/lysight-michel/

Michel Lysight is currently a professor at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and in music schools in Brussels.
