Sa biographie
  Omar YAGOUBI    Omar Yagoubi, né en 1957, débute le piano à 7 ans. Il écrit ses premières partitions à 8 ans. Il rencontre au collège M. André Berthe, son professeur de musique. Il remarque ses dons particuliers. Après audition, à 13 ans, Omar rentre exceptionnellement au conservatoire de Douai grâce à la clairvoyance M. Henri Vachey. Il donne son premier récital à 17 ans. Remarqué par Aldo Ciccolini qui lui prodigue ses conseils, il est nommé meilleur soliste aux victoires de la musique en 1987 pour son interprétation de l'œuvre de Jean Wiener, il a 29 ans. Il parcourt alors le monde et revient en France en 1990. il y compose depuis ses œuvres symphoniques et lyriques. En 1993, Jean-Claude Casadesus programme son poème symphonique « Hadrien » d'après l'œuvre de Marguerite Yourcenar et la création française de son concerto pour percussions en 1996 par l'Orchestre National de Lille. Le Kyoto Symphony Orchestra, l'Orchestre Symphonique de Douai, l'Orchestre d'Art et d'Essai et de nombreux solistes, interprètent ses œuvres à la fois savantes et accessibles. D'origine arabo-polonaise, Omar Yagoubi donne à sa création une couleur originale, une passerelle très imagée entre l'occident et l'orient. Tantôt chromatique, tantôt modale, sa musique privilégie les percussions (musivum opus, concerto pour piano), le chant (stabat mater) et le grand symphonique (Hadrien). Un concerto pour violon, des pièces pour piano (poloniae anima), de la musique de chambre, Des transcriptions d'orchestre et pour quatuor à cordes de Mozart et Bach complètent son catalogue. Il collabore aussi aux films (Marbeuf, Venault, Syrîakyn) et à la chanson (Leprest, Caussimon).     Je souhaite à beaucoup de musiciens d'avoir la sincérité musicale d'Omar Yagoubi. Aldo Ciccolini    Omar Yagoubi was born in 1957 and began studying piano at the age of 7.  He began writing his first compositions at age 8.   Andre Berthe, his middle school music teacher, was the first to take note of his unusual musical gifts.   At the precocious age of 13, he was accepted to the Douai conservatory due to the insightfulness of Henri Vachey.  At 17 he gave his first recital. Aldo Ciccolini, who also noted his talent, offered him his advice, and, at 29, he was awarded the "Best Soloist" prize at the 1987 French "Victoires de la Musique" ceremony for his interpretation of the works of Jean Wiener.  He then toured throughout the world, returning to France in 1990. Since then he has been composing classical and symphonic works.  In 1993 Jean-Claude Casadesus included his symphonic poem "Hadrian", inspired by the works of Marguerite Yourcenar, on his program, and again in 1996 when Casadesus conducted the National Orchestra of Lille (France) in his percussion concerto. His works have been performed by the Kyoto Symphony Orchestra, the Artistic Orchestra of Essai (France), as well as the the previously-mentioned symphonies, in addition to numerous solo artists who appreciate the intelligence and accessibility of his compositions.  Of Arab-Polish heritage, Omar Yagoubi gives an original hue to his works, which are infused with images rooted in his dual Western-Oriental background. Sometimes chromatic, sometimes modal, his music features percussions (musivum opus, concerto for piano), voice (stabat mater) and large symphonic works (Hadrian). A violin concerto, piano pieces (poloniae anima), chamber music, orchestral and string quartet transcriptions of Mozart and Bach complete his curriculm vitae. He has also worked on films (Marbeuf, Venault, Syrîakyn) and songs (Leprest, Caussimon). "I would like for musicians to have the musical sincerity of Omar Yagoubi." (Aldo Ciccolini)
