ASL 2014: Maurice-Gaston Du Berger

Maurice-Gaston Du Berger was admitted in 2004 to The Collège Lionel-Groulx in classical piano where he studied with Dominique Morel. This is when he discovers folk music of the Balkans. From this revelation was born a passion for composition that will lead to his thesis titled as "Balkans and Carpathians, or, The influence on my language" under Ana Sokolović's direction. This master degree was concluded by the premiere of the Cantate de l'Éther, works featuring a poem by Claude Gauvreau.
He now actively continues to compose, participating in numerous projects and collaborations in the music scene.
