Darius Milhaud

September 4, 1892 - June 22, 1974
born in Aix-en-Provence, France, composed during the Modern period
Darius Milhaud (1892-1974) was one of the most prolific and varied musical stylists among the modernists, and he established his reputation through being a member of the cosmopolitan group of French composers, Les Six. Having served during WWI as an attaché in Rio de Janeiro and visited the United States in the 1920s, Milhaud adopted an open attitude to using folk music and jazz in his compositions. Notable for their piquant jazz sonorities and biting polytonality, La création du monde and Le boeuf sur la toit were two of Milhaud's most scandalous ballets, but later became his most popular works. ~ Blair Sanderson, Rovi

Jasustar, thank you so much for that very interesting information.

This bio doesn't mention that Milhaud fled the Nazis in 1940 to take a teaching position at Mills College in Oakland, California, where he was to have Dave Brubeck as a graduate student. How cool is that?!

He was also a member of a very cultured and highly prominent Jewish family in France - he had to flee that country during WWII and came to the US. He incorporated several Hebraic themes into his compositions and never lost a sense of his heritage.
I get that I thumbed-up a song by this guy, but I swear I have been hearing his complete works nonstop...
