Gabriel Yared

Gabriel Yared

Biography

A film director can always rely on Gabriel Yared to compose an original, compelling score that complements both story and character. Jean-Luc Godard broke him into movies in 1979, and the international success of Betty Blue (1986) led to his hopping back and forth between Continental, British and American films ever since. Like Jerry Goldsmith, he has a keen understanding of jazz as well as classical music, and can give something a personal stamp even when he borrows from another composer's style (e.g., his work on The Talented Mr. Ripley, in which Yared combined Hitchcock with Cool Jazz). He has been awarded many international film prizes, and he even scored an Academy Award for The English Patient.
