THE LIVING COMPOSERS PROJECT  

Régis Campo

(b. 1968, Marseille).

French composer of mostly stage, orchestral, chamber, choral, vocal, piano, and organ works that have been performed in Asia, Europe and North America.

Mr. Campo initially studied composition with Georges Bœuf at the Conservatoire à rayonnement régional de Marseille, as well as philosophy in Aix-en-Provence. He then studied composition with Gérard Grisey at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris, where he earned the Premier Prix de Composition in 1995. He also studied composition privately with Edison Denisov and Henri Dutilleux.

Among his honours are First Prize in the competition of the Internationale Gaudeamus Muziekweek in Amsterdam (1996, for Commedia), Premier Prix, Prix Spécial du Jeune Compositeur and Prix du Public in the competition Henri Dutilleux (1996, for Exsultate Jubilate), the Prix Hervé Dugardin from SACEM (1999), and the Prix Pierre Cardin from the Académie des Beaux-Arts (1999). In addition, he earned a residency at the Villa Medici in Rome (1999–2001) and was twice a finalist for the Prix Prince-Pierre-de-Monaco (2001, for Les Jeux de Rabelais; 2002, for Faërie).

His principal publisher is Éditions Henry Lemoine, but Le Chant du Monde is the publisher of many early works and Armiane, Éditions Alphonse Leduc and Éditions Gérard Billaudot are the publishers of some early works.
