About Me
Paul Sterne is a French composer, organist and conductor, who was born in 1977.

A "late" musician, he started to study music with organ in 1995, at the Conservatoire National de Région de Marseille (France) in the classes of Annick Chevalier-Naddéo and André Rossi. Between 1998 and 2000, he was awarded with several classical first prizes, including organ.

Afterwards, he studied orchestra conducting with Hungarian maestro Jenö Rehak, and took courses from major maestros such as Uros Lajovic (Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst, Vienna, Austria), Leif Segerstam, Colin Metters, Michael Dittrich (Wiener Symphoniker) ...

​;" I do not care to know whether I write music "of the past". What matters to me is to be in harmony with myself,
to compose what I feel, to write some music which can affect, which can move even one single person. That`s enough to me."

;Paul Sterne was an organist at the Gap Cathedral (France) from 1997 to 2007. He played hundreds of concerts across France and Europe, as a soloist and also within choirs or orchestras.

From 2003 to 2007 he was in charge of the musical direction of the Alpes-Provence Youth Orchestra (France) with which he contributed to gather both professional and non-professional musicians together in ambitious productions such as Puccini’s La Bohème, Mahler’s 1st Symphony, Verdi’s Requiem ...

As a composer, he has authored an important catalogue which can be divided into three different parts: music "for concerts", music for images, and numerous arrangements for organ and orchestrations.

His style, unclassifiable, is a mixture of classical and film music, and is highly esteemed by filmmakers and documentary directors.
