About the Composer:
Richard Dubugnon's music has been described as “driven by a playful modern sensibility” by the New York Times. Stating that his compositions act as reflections of himself at a given moment in his life, Dubugnon regards each work as a ‘variation on a theme’ of a particular period, as well as a personal diary. Gauthier Capuçon and Jean-Yves Thibaudet are both artists that regularly champion Dubugnon’s music.
In 2017, Naxos released recordings of a selection of Arcanes Symphoniques ‘tarot cards for orchestra’, one of Dubugnon’s most globally successful works, leading The Guardian to write that the ‘joy in the orchestra’s swooning sonic possibilities is everywhere evident’. For the 2016/2017 season Richard was composer-in-residence with the Winterthur Musikkollegium (Thomas Zehtmaier).
