French composer André Jolivet was born in Paris on 8 August 1905 into an artistic and musical family, and began to paint and play the cello at the age of fourteen. His first composition teacher was the composer and music critic Paul Le Flem. Later, after hearing music by Schoenberg, Jolivet became the only European student of Edgard Varèse.
André Jolivet died in Paris on 20 December 1974, aged sixty-nine, leaving a wide range of chamber and solo music, vocal and choral music, ballets, operas, keyboard music, orchestral music and concertos.
