His orchestral works have been performed, among others, by Orchestre National de France, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio-France, Ensemble Orchestral de Paris, London Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, WDR Sinfonie Orchester-Köln, English Chamber Orchestra, Munich Chamber Orchestra, European Camerata, Tapiola Sinfonietta, Collegium Musicum Bruggensis, Liège Philharmonic orchestra...

Cds containing N. Bacri's music released since fifteen years includes (mainly) First, Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth string quartets, Fourth Symphony (Classical Symphony "Sturm und Drang"), Concerto for cello and orchestra, Second Concerto for violin and orchestra, Une Prière, for violin and orchestra, Flute Concerto, Concerto da camera for clarinet and strings, Concerto amoroso, Concerto Nostalgico, three piano Trios, Sonatas for violin and piano, for cello and piano, for viola and piano etc...

"After studying music analysis and composition with Françoise Gangloff-Levéchin, Christian Manen and Louis Saguer (from 1979), he entered the Paris Conservatoire (graduated 1983, first prize for composition), where his teachers were Claude Ballif, Marius Constant, Serge Nigg and Michel Philippot.

From 1987 he was at the head of the chamber music department of Radio-France, a position he relinquished in 1991 to devote himself entirely to composition. He had also held residencies at the Casa de Velasquez (Spain) and with a number of French orchestras (from 1993).
His early works, which culminate with the First Symphony (1983-4, dedicated to Elliott Carter), are rooted in a constructivist post-Webernian aesthetic. Later compositions, beginning with the Cello Concerto (1985/87, dedicated to Henri Dutilleux), draw on the melodic continuity displaced by the predominant aesthetic of the postwar period. This change of style has placed Bacri in the musical aesthetic of his time, where a spirit of reconciliation prevails." (Philippe Michel, Grove Dictionary of Music, edition 2001)
