- Lyrical, colourful, with great rhythmical life, Swiss composer Richard Dubugnon's music inherits the transparence of the French and the structural strengh of the German, plus a touch of today's sounds, to obtain a very individual and immediately communicative music.

- often praised for his colourful orchestration, he tries to apply to music different forms & techniques found in art & literature, also cinema and video (flash back, zoom, negative, superimpositions...).


"The son of Ravel and Prokofiev" Jacques Doucelin, Le Figaro


"The piece (...) is suffused with Ravel's spirit, but the lyrical themes are Mr Dubugnon's own and are driven by a playful, modern sensibility." Allan Kozinn, New York Times


"This score grows audibly out of the brightly colored orchestral traditions of Debussy and Ravel, with updated influences from some newer French composers. This is unashamedly sensuous music." Scott Cantrel, Dallas Morning News
