H o r a t i u   R A D U L E S C U  

was born on the 7th of January 1942 in Bucharest, Romania

He has been living  in Paris since ’69 where he became a French citizen in ’74.

• He first studied violin with Nina Alexandrescu, a disciple of George Enescu and Jacques Thibaud.

• 1969 MA in Composition, “premier nommé”, at the High School of Music in Bucharest; professors :

Tiberiu Olah (composition), Stefan Niculescu (analysis), Aurel Stroe (orchestration, formalized music).

• From ’70 to’72  he participated in courses for new music in Cologne ( Mauricio Kagel, Luc Ferrari)
and Darmstadt (John Cage, Iannis Xenakis, Karlheinz Stockhausen, György Ligeti).

• From ’79 to’81 he visited  the Paris IRCAM for sessions in computer-assisted composition and psycho-acoustics.

•1988/89   composer in residence of the DAAD in Berlin.

• From ’89 to’90 he composed in San Francisco, Venice and Rome 
thanks to a French "Villa Medici" Fellowship.

• 1992 he was awarded the French "Sabbatical Year Grant” for composition.

•1968-69 he founded  the “spectral technique of composition” .

This comprises variable distribution of the spectral energy  - "spectrum pulse", synthesis of the global sound-sources,

micro- and  macro-form as sound-process, four simultaneous layers of perception and of speed, spectral scordaturae - ie  rows of unequal intervals corresponding to harmonic scales, for example: 

opus  10  credo   (’69) for nine violoncelli (55´) where 4170  timbre-processes  integrate  the first 45  spectral components of a C-fundamental - "
emanation of the immanence"   and  

opus  33   "infinite to be cannot be infinite /  infinite anti-be could be infinite" (’76 - ’87) for nine string quartets (49´) where 128 different spectral components inbetween the 36th and the 641st harmonic build the scordatura of an imaginary "viola da gamba" (the 128 strings of the 8 quartets around the audience), while the ninth quartet,in the centre of the space, is modulating inbetween 27 spectra : the strict tuning of each micro-music is a function of its own duration, achieving thus - for the first time - an absolute interdependence between pitch (spectrum tuning) and time (duration) - released Feb..2002 on CD Edition RZ 4002 Berlin/DAAD – Arditti String Quartet of London / Paris Ircam production.

“Horatiu Radulescu is one of the most original young musicians of our time. We know that in the  XXth century - more than in any other, Science and Art go hand in hand. This is particularly true for the music of Radulescu who has participated in the renewal of musical language.”    

review excerpts

...Jean-Noël von der Weid in Le Monde de La Musique,
Paris May ´85 in an interview with Xenakis, Nono, Radulescu, Ligeti, Kagel and other composers:

"Horatiu Radulescu, the greatest innovator of the music today."

"This ‘Ode to Joy’ of our time opens the next century’s music"

... following the Radulescu Concert at the Almeida ’88 in London - with the Arditti String Quartet and the European Lucero ensemble conducted by the composer, Anne Rey wrote in Le Monde, Paris:

"Ritual of total jubilation, of an extreme energy" Liberation, Paris  April ’94 - whole page dedicated by Christian Leble to the composer
(´after the death of Cage and Scelsi, Radulescu is the actual pioneer, the most revolutionary and the greatest underground composer´):

"Between cosmos and humanity, the sonorities of Horatiu Radulescu have something much more universal"

"They will change the world :

Horatiu Radulescu, Simon Rattle, Gerard Mortier, Brian Ferneyhough"

... following the Horatiu Radulescu Concert in Paris ´88 at the Centre Pompidou, with the 2e2m conducted by the composer himself, Anne Rey wrote in Le Monde:
