Julien-François Zbinden

Julien-François Zbinden (*1917)

Julien-François Zbinden was born on November 11th, 1917 in Rolle (Vaud/Switzerland). After having studied piano, with secondary studies in voice and violin, he began in 1938 his musical career as a pianist in a jazz band, having had a passion for jazz at an early age. As a composer, he was self-taught at the beginning, so to speak. After 1947 he worked at the musical department of Radio Suisse Romande, rapidly moving to positions of great responsibility. President of the Swiss Association of Musicians (1973-1979) and, from 1987 to 1991, of SUISA (Swiss society for author’s rights), he has composed ceaselessly all his life.

His catalog of works includes over a hundred works (opera, oratorio, five symphonies, concertos, choral music, music for radio and film), of which many have received international recognition. Julien-François Zbinden is one of the Swiss contemporary composers who is played throughout the world. Many of his works have also been recorded.
