Evgueni Galperine (born 1974) and Sacha Galperine (born 1980) are Russian-born French film score composers and brothers. They were born in Russia and studied music in Moscow, but moved to Paris, France in 1990.[1][2]

In 2012, they were nominated for the Goya Award for Best Original Score for Eva.[3] The Galperine brothers wrote the music for the 2017 film Loveless after hearing a synopsis of the story, but not seeing the film or reading the screenplay. Evgueni Galperine said the piece "11 Cycles of E" was written as an interpretation of a parent's thoughts, with the parent only being able to think about how a missing child must be found.[4] Critic David Ehrlich named Evgueni and Sacha Galperine's score as the ninth best cinematic soundtrack of 2017, particularly praising "11 Cycles of E" as "striking".[5] For Loveless, the brothers jointly won the European Film Award for Best Composer.[6]
