I’m glad I made it possible by choosing this Victor Hugo’s poem, this hymn of peace, this great indictment of war and human madness.” Isabelle Aboulker, on July 2010. He is a pianist and a renowned composer. Since 1981, she has particularly worked on voice practicing and opera. She pays a close attention to prosody, she is demanding when choosing her librettos. She wants to be the heir of French traditional composers like Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel and Francis Poulenc. She is indivisible from opera for children as she composed many of it, like “Moi, Ulysse” (ordered by Jean-Claude Malgoire in 1982 for the Atelier Lyrique de Tourcoing) and “Jérémy Fisher” (ordered by Quatuor Debussy and the Opéra de Lyon in 2007). She wrote several textbooks for singers when she was a teacher of musical training at Conservatoire de Paris (from 1983 to 2003). She became a composer at the same time, and she won the Prix Musique de la SACD in 2000 and the Académie des Beaux-Arts rewarded her in 1999.
