Gabriel Yared © Ammar Abd Rabbo

After spending his childhood in Lebanon, Gabriel Yared attended the composition classes of Henri Dutilleux in Paris. He stayed in Brazil and returned to France in 1972, and quickly became an orchestrator and producer sought after by the biggest European singers of the time. Since 1980, he devoted most of his time to film composition. He has written more than a hundred scores to date, of which many have earned him prestigious international awards. He wrote his first score for Jean-Luc Godard, which was followed by successful notable collaborations with Jean-Jacques Beineix, Jean-Jacques Annaud (Cesar for The Lover), Anthony Minghella (Oscar for The English Patient). Several years later, he collaborated with Xavier Dolan, winner of the 2016 Grand Prix at Cannes. He will perform a concert of his music with the London Symphony Orchestra on December 9, 2017, at the Paris Philharmonie.
