Go to content
Thierry Deleruyelle is a French composer, conductor and percussionist who graduated from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris (CNSM) where he was awarded prizes in percussion, harmony, counterpoint, fugue and forms, and diplomas in analysis and orchestration. He was also unanimously awarded postgraduate diplomas (DFS) in composition and percussion with distinction.

His compositions have allowed him to work with many renowned artists and for his work to be recorded on CD by wind and brass bands all over the world. He has composed orchestral works (for symphony orchestra, wind and brass bands), chamber music and solo pieces but it is the bands that he like the most, particularly the wind band and brass band for which he writes exclusively on commission. He also won first prize at the international composition competitions of Saint-Amand-les-Eaux (France – 2005) and Haize Berriak (Spain – 2009).

In 2015, Thierry Deleruyelle was commissioned to write the set piece for the European Brass Band Competition organised by the European Brass Band Association. "Fraternity" will be his first major work written for brass band, and it has been a worldwide success since its release. He thus became the first French composer to write the set piece for the European competition, as well as the set piece for the British Open 2017 (Fraternity) and the British Open 2023 (Sand and Stars). His peers awarded him internationally as the Composer of the Year prize in 2016, 2017 and 2023.

In France, during the military parade on the Champs-Elysées on 14 July 2023, Thierry Deleruyelle's composition "Majesty" will be performed by an international military band as an overture to the President of the Republic, Emmanuel Macron for the French National Day (Bastille Day). (video)

In his work as a conductor, Deleruyelle takes several groups under the baton by invitation as well as the Voltige Orchestra, of which he is one of founding members.
