Hèctor Parra

Hèctor Parra

Héctor Parra was born in 1976 in Barcelona. He studied at the conservatory in his hometown, and at the university and at IRCAM in Paris with David Padrós; Brian Ferneyhough; Jonathan Harvey; and Michael Jarrell. After winning other renowned awards, in 2011 he received a scholarship from the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation. His works are performed at international festivals and in important concert halls. Two portrait CDs (KAIROS and Col-legno) and a complete recording of his chamber opera "Hypermusic Prologue," based on a libretto by the physicist Lisa Randall, document the spectrum of his work up until the present. He has received commissions from, among other institutions, Musée du Louvre; IRCAM; Ensemble Intercontemporain; Klangforum Wien; Berlin Academy of the Arts; WDR; Musica Strasbourg; Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord; Cité de la Musique Paris; and the Huddersfield Festival (where he was composer-in-residence in 2013). He has been composer-in-residence at IRCAM-Centre Pompidou in Paris since 2002, and he has been teaching there as a professor of composition since September 2013.
