Francisco Uberto

With a diploma in composition from the National University of Córdoba in Argentina, Francisco Uberto (Argentina, 1988) feels the need to explore the formal and discursive limits of contemporary music. His work has been supported by several presitigious fondations since 2012: Fond national des arts (Argentina) in 2012, Académie de France à Madrid for the Casa Velázquez in 2014, Ibermúsicas for a residency at  Miso Music in Portugal in 2015, Fondation de France in 2016 and 2017, Fondation Meyer 2017. Even in his first works, Francisco Uberto focused on ideas of instability and fragility with which he built his musical thought, no matter the form or size of his pieces. His repertoire included orchestral works and chamber music. Since 2016, he has studied under Stefano Gervasoni, Luis Naón, Yann Maresz, Yan Geslin, and Oriol Saladrigues in a Master’s degree program at the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Paris.
