Bryce Dessner

Bryce Dessner is a composer of classical music and film scores as well as a founding member, guitarist, arranger, and co-principal songwriter of the band The National. He has been commissioned to write for the world’s leading ensembles, from the Orchestre de Paris to the Los Angeles Philharmonic. His Concerto for Two Pianos, for Katia and Marielle Labèque, was premiered by the London Philharmonic Orchestra and recorded for Deutsche Grammophon with Orchestre de Paris conducted by Matthias Pintscher. Mr. Dessner was recently named one of a collective of eight “extraordinary artists, thinkers and doers” to help steer the artistic leadership of Esa-Pekka Salonen as the San Francisco Symphony’s new music director beginning in September 2020. Bryce Dessner has won Grammy Awards, both as a classical composer and with The National, and is an increasingly high-profile presence in the world of film score composition. His credits include Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Oscar-winning The Revenant and The Two Popes by Oscar-nominated director Fernando Meirelles (2019).
