JACQUES CHARPENTIER
(b. 1933)

Born in Paris. He lived in Calcutta and Bombay and made a study of Indian music. On his return to France, he attended the Paris Conservatory where Tony Aubin was his composition teacher and Olivier Messiaen taught him theory. He worked as an organist and served as chief inspector of music for the Ministry of Cultural Affairs. His compositions, many influenced by his sojourn in India, cover the fields of ballet, orchestral, chamber, instrumental and vocal music. His orchestral catalogue includes Concerto for Ondes Martenot and Orchestre (1960), Octuple Concerto {Concerto Grosso} for 8 Wind Instruments and String Orchestra (1963), Trumpet Concerto (1976) and a series of 10 Concertos with String Orchestra (1969-1983) - Nos. 1 (Organ), 2 (Guitar), 3 (Harpsichord), 4 (Piano), 5 (Saxophone), 6 (Oboe), 7 (Trumpet), 8 (Horn), 9 (Cello) and 10 (Clarinet).

ERNEST CHAUSSON
(1855-1899)

Born in Paris. He studied under Jules Massenet at the Paris Conservatory but also took private composition lessons with César Franck. Coming from a wealthy family, he could devote his musical activities completely to composing. Like many other French composers of his generation, he fell under the spell of Richard Wagner as evidenced by his opera "Le Roi Arthus." His early death cut off a major French voice but he did complete a small group of important chamber works as well as the orchestral works Symphony in B-flat, "Poème de l'Amour et de la Mer" for Soprano and Orchestra and the symphonic poems "Viviane" and "Soir de Fête." Sketches exist of a Second Symphony that he was working on at the time of his death.

CLAUDE DEBUSSY
(1862-1918)

Born in Saint-Germain-en-Laye (Parisian suburbs). Entering the Paris Conservatory at the age of 10, he studied piano with Antoine-François Marmontel and harmony under Albert Lavignac with a few lessons from César Franck and Ernest Guiraud. Travels across Europe under the patronage of Mme. Nazhdeza von Meck landed him in Moscow where he became acquainted with the music of Tchaikovsky and Mussorgsky. Visits to Bayreuth exposed him to the music of Richard Wagner and visiting gamelan musicians from Java left an enduring impression. His musical career blossomed early and steadily and he became, according to most opinions, the pre-eminent French composer excelling in all genres from his opera "Pelleas et Melisande" to his sui generis body of piano music.

(1865-1935)

Born in Paris. He attended the Paris Conservatory and was taught harmony by Théodore Dubois and composition by Ernest Guiraud. He worked as a music critic before securing a teaching position at the Paris Conservatory where he taught composition to Maurice Duruflé and Olivier Messiaen among many others.

His opera "Ariane et Barbe-Bleue" and ballet "La Péri" and especially his symphonic scherzo "L'Apprenti Sorcier" have kept his name alive. His remaining orchestral works are the Symphony and 3 Concert Overtures. It is believed that he had completed a Second Symphony but destroyed it shortly before his death.

(1888-1979)

Born in Paris. He embarked on a musical career at age 19, and studied theoretical subjects with Leon Saint-Requier at the Schola Cantorum. In composition, however, he was basically self-taught.

GABRIEL FAURÉ
(1845-1924)

Born in Pamiers, Ariège, Midi-Pyrénées. His first teacher was Louis Niedermeyer but it was Camille Saint-Saëns who gave him the bulk of his compositional grounding. He enjoyed long and distinguished careers as both composer and teacher whose roster of eminent students included Ravel, Koechlin, Florent Schmitt and Nadia Boulanger. His catalogue of compositions is vast and includes everything from opera to solo instrumental works with a particular aptitude for chamber and choral music. The non-concertante orchestral music that keeps his name in the active repertoire are the suites "Masques et Bergamasques," "Pélleas et Mélisande" and "Dolly" as well as Pavane.

CÉSAR FRANCK
(1822-1890)

Born in Liège, Belgium. A child prodigy, he moved to Paris with his family in 1835 and he entered the Paris Conservatory two years later where his teachers were Pierre-Joseph-Guillaume Zimmermann, François Benoist and Aimé-Ambroise-Simon Leborne. After a brief return to Belgium, he settled permanently in Paris in 1843 and became one of the leading figures in French music. As an eminent organist and teacher, he tutored at the Paris Conservatory a host of future important composers including D'Indy, Chausson, Ropartz and Pierné. He composed in various genres ranging from opera to solo instrumental works. It is far from certain, but the Variations Brillantes listed below is probably what Franck considered his Piano Concerto No. 1.

SAMSON FRANÇOIS
(1924-1970)

Born in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, where his father worked in the consulate. His first studies were in Italy, with Pietro Mascagni, who encouraged him to give his first concert at the age of six. After having studied in the Nice Conservatory, he came to the attention of Alfred Cortot, who encouraged him to move to Paris and study with Yvonne Lefébure at the École Normale de Musique. He also studied piano with Cortot and harmony with Nadia Boulanger before moving on to to the Paris Conservatory to study with Marguerite Long. He had a brilliant career as a pianist but an overindulgent life style brought about his early death. He composed very little.

LOUIS THÉODORE GOUVY (new entry – also add to index with link)
(1819-1898)

Born in Goffontaine, Alsace (then under Prussian rule), to Francophone parents. Unable to attend the Paris Conservatory, he studied music privately in both Paris and Berlin, a prominent teacher being Antoine Elwart. He composed prolifically in various genres with the majority of his output being for instrumental forces. This preference eventually made him resettle in Germany as the French were much more interested in works for the voice, particularly operas.

ANDRÉ (AMINOULLAH) HOSSEIN
(1905-1983)

Born in Samarkand, Russian Empire (now, Uzbekistan). His original name was Aminoullah Husseinov. He began his musical studies in Moscow before the Russian Revolution and then left for Germany and continued his studies at the Stuttgart Conservatory, and later in Tübingen and Berlin, where he studied piano with Arthur Schnabel and composition with W. Klatt. He settled in France in 1927 and attended the Paris Conservatory where he studied composition and orchestration with Paul Vidal. He considered himself an Iranian by heritage based on his coversion to Zoroastrianism and his music reflects this choice. He composed orchestral, instrumental and vocal works.

VINCENT D'INDY
(1851-1931)

Born in Paris. As a child prodigy, he studied the piano with Louis Diémer and Antoine-François Marmontel and harmony with Albert Lavignac but initially taught himself composition by studying the scores of his great predecessors as well as various textbooks. Later on he became a pupil of César Franck at the Paris Conservatory. His own academic career was highlighted by his co-founding with Alexandre Guilmant and Charles Bourdes of the Schola Cantorem where he became director and went on to teach composition to, among many others, Erik Satie, Albert Roussel, Albéric Magnard, Arthur Honegger, Darius Milhaud and Joseph Canteloube. He composed operas, chamber, instrumental, vocal and a significant number of large orchestral works that have been well-represented on recordings.

Returning to Paris after graduation, she continued her studies with Darius Milhaud, Simone Plé-Caussade and Olivier Messiaen at the Paris Conservatory. She later joined the faculty of that school and also taught in America at Tanglewood, Mills College, Berkeley and other schools.

ANDRÉ JOLIVET
(1905-1974)

Born in Paris into a highly cultured family. He began his musical studies as a child and had several years of tutelage from Paul Le Flem. He was propelled into a modernist direction by his acquaintance with Edgard Varese and with a number of like-inclined composers such as Yves Baudrier, Daniel-Lesur and Olivier Messiaen formed La Jeune France whose purpose was the promotion of contemporary French music. He worked as a conductor and taught at the Paris Conservatory and produced a vast amount of music ranging from operas to solo pieces for instruments and voices. In addition to his Concertos listed below, he composed many other substantial orchestral works including 3 numbered Symphonies, A Symphony for Strings and a Symphonie de Danses.
