Biography

Vladimir Cosma is a Romania-born composer with a long and illustrious history of collaborating with some of French cinema's greatest auteurs. One of his first musical compositions for film was for Yves Robert's "Alexander," a movie about a man worked like a dog by his overbearing wife until her death sets him free. Cosma and Robert worked together several times, including on adaptations of Marcel Pagnol's autobiographical novels "My Father's Glory" and "My Mother's Castle," for both of which Cosma was nominated for a C├ęsar for best music. Cosma has dabbled in a vast array of musical genres, including jazz, folk, and classical. The depth and breadth of his work is even more impressive when one considers the diverse musical traditions he has explored in his film music career. In 1983, Cosma was awarded the Grand Prix du Disque at Cannes in honor of his entire body of work.
