We are thrilled to announce that French-Swiss composer Richard Dubugnon has signed an exclusive, worldwide publishing agreement with Birdsong
Described as “driven by a playful, modern sensibility” by the New York Times, Richard Dubugnon’s music has been performed and commissioned by orchestras such as New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Orchestre de Paris, Concertgebouworkest, and BBC Symphony Orchestra. His work has been championed by conductors such as Paavo Järvi, Kent Nagano, Sir Antonio Pappano and Esa-Pekka Salonen, as well as performers such as Gautier Capuçon, Xavier de Maistre, Julian Rachlin, Katia and Marielle Labèque, Timothy Ridout, Denis Kozhukhin and Jean-Yves Thibaudet.
Dubugnon’s catalogue of works includes over one hundred pieces, ranging from symphonic, to chamber music, to stage works. He is a regular guest of the Verbier Festival, having written commissions for its 20th and 30th anniversaries, and has had works performed at the Royal Albert Hall (BBC Proms), Konzerthaus Wien and Wigmore Hall.
The current season sees premieres by Janine Jansen, Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra/Naoto Otomo, Kohei Ueno, and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra/Jean-Luc Tingaud.
Dubugnon is also a double bassist, performing with leading ensembles and writing frequently for his instrument. He lives with his family in Oise, France and also resides part-time in his birth town of Lausanne, Switzerland.
