WHO IS LAURENT ?
With his distinctive voice and uniquely memorable themes, award-winning French composer Laurent Eyquem is known for his surprising artistic range and melodies of singular beauty. He has gained a reputation with the international film music community for consistently delivering richly thematic scores, with critics drawing comparisons to composing greats such as Jerry Goldsmith and John Barry and his various nominations have more than once placed him alongside film-music legends such as John Williams and Ennio Morricone.
Laurent, who began his classical studies at just 6 years of age, is not only a composer, but is also the conductor on all of his projects, and has had the good fortune to conduct and record his projects with internationally acclaimed soloists, symphonic orchestras and choirs around the globe, on films and series for studios and networks such as BBC, Sony, Lionsgate, Starz, WB, Universal, Orange Films…
IN THE MEDIA
‘‘...Laurent Eyquem...now stands at the forefront of the next lushly accented invasion to hit Hollywood’s shores...
Practicing a thematic gift for unabashedly soaring music that’s marked the work of such progenitors as Maurice Jarre, Georges Delerue, Michel Legrand and Alexandre Desplat, Eyquem has begun to catch soundtrack admirers’ears...”
Daniel Schweiger - Film Music Magazine
‘…Laurent Eyquem knows the human soul like few composers do and has the extraordinary ability to express very clearly all its complex nuances, from love to sadness to doubt to determination through music...It’s the kind of score I can see myself returning to quite often and one hour I’m sure you will consider gained once you’ve spent it’’
Mihnea Manduteanu – International Film Music Critic Association
"... His music is once again totally engrossing and stunning, it has a highly emotive sound to it which is created by the composers use of strings and choir which are enhanced further by woodwind and brass which have a kind of Barry-esque aura to them, they create a sound of solitude but at the same time have a warmth and emotion to them that is heartrending and attractive...’’
Movie Music Italiano
‘‘… Laurent Eyquem is a composer who has the talent and ability to create wonderful tone poems that enhance and support every project he is involved with, and as well as serving the images and storylines the composer also manages to create music that is enjoyable to sit and listen to away from those images and scenarios. There are no highlight moments within the score, because each track each piece and each theme is a highlight itself. The combination of sorrowful but attractive cello and piano at times is memorable and enriching… One for the collection, one of the best scores thus far this year’’ - (18 Clash of Futures) -
John Mansell – Movie Music International
‘‘…Laurent Eyquem’s score is completely gorgeous. The “Opening Theme” has a jazzy tinge – sultry, smoky, melancholic, very beautiful. Piano features prominently in that and indeed most cues: the following “A Life in Pictures” sees the strings join in for the first time. It’s heartmelting – so sincere and full of emotion. And then “The Granddaughter” – it’s even better. Tender and soft but packing a heavyweight emotional punch, it’s really quite something…’’ - (Nostalgia) -
