Gilbert Amy (1936- )
« on: January 26, 2014, 05:57:06 AM »
Gilbert Amy (born 29 August 1936, Paris) is a French composer and conductor.  In 1954 he entered the Conservatoire de Paris, where he was taught and influenced by Olivier Messiaen and Darius Milhaud and studied piano with Yvonne Loriod and fugue with Simone Plé-Caussade.  His first compositions (Œil de fumée) date from 1955.  In 1957 he met Pierre Boulez, under whose direction he composed his Piano Sonata.  A year later Boulez commissioned from him a work called Mouvements, which was performed in Darmstadt by the Orchestre du Domaine Musical, an ensemble with the goal of promoting new music.  From 1958 to 1961 he attended the courses given by Karlheinz Stockhausen in Darmstadt.
