She is Artistic Director of the Printemps Musical d'Annecy and Associate Professor at Montpellier University where she teaches composition and orchestration. Her works are published by Billaudot, Leduc, Delatour and Svitzer Editions. Unsubdued but attentive to musical trends and schools, Sophie Lacaze has developed an original aesthetics that takes into account the current research on sound while looking to restore music its primary functions, ie ritual, incantation, dance, and its links with nature.
