Bechara El Khoury 's info
CATEGORY: Composers/Musicians
DATE OF BIRTH: 1957-00-00
BIRTHPLACE: Beirut, Lebanon

Biography

Bechara El Khoury is a composer. Born in Beirut in 1957, he moved to Paris in 1979. Having written a hundred works between 1969 and 1978, he became extremely active as a pianist, conductor and Kappelmeister. He became a French national in 1987, and as a result many French institutions  commissioned works for him.

Since, he has received many prizes,  and his works have been performed by orchestras as noted as the Orchestre National de France and the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine, the London Symphony Orchestra and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.

By and large, his works are predominantly symphonic, tending to feelings of existential solitude and tragedy. His most ambitious work is the symphony Les ruines de Beyrouth, composed in 1985 in memory of the 1975 war.

His works are published by the Editions Max Eschig and the Editions Alphonse Leduc in Paris.

Bechara El Khoury's Les fleuves engloutis was a finalist in the 2003 Masterprize international composing competition.
