    Tailleferre , Darius Milhaud, Arthur Honegger, Louis Durey and Georges Auric. The six were influenced by Eric Satie and Cocteau's anti-romantic aesthetics.
    Early Life
    Born into a wealthy family in Paris on January 7, 1899, Poulenc's background gave him a musical and literary sophistication from boyhood. He started piano lessons with his mother at the age of five, then subsequently studied with the highly regarded piano teacher Ricardo Vines. Poulenc was already a publicly noted composer by the time he took lessons with Charles Koechlin for three years.

    Introduction Cantatas Other Vocal Non-Vocal ... Z Francis Poulenc (Composer) Born: January 7, 1899 - Paris, France
    Died: January 30, 1963 - Paris, France
    A decisive turn in his development as a composer occurred when Francis Poulenc attracted the attention of Erik Satie, the arbiter elegantiarum of the arts and social amenities in Paris. Deeply impressed by Satie's fruitful eccentricities in the then-shocking manner of Dadaism, Poulenc joined an ostentatiously self-descriptive musical group called the Nouveaux Jeunes. In a gratuitous parallel with the Russian Five, the French critic Henri Collet dubbed the "New Youths" Le Groupe de Six, and the label stuck under the designation Les Six. The 6 musicians included, besides Poulenc: Auric, Durey, Arthur Honegger , Milhaud, and Tailleferre. Although quite different in their styles of composition and artistic inclinations, they continued collective participation in various musical events. Les Six also had links with Erik Satie and Jean Cocteau.
    Francis Poulenc embraced the Dada movement's techniques, creating melodies that would have been appropriate for Parisian music halls. From 1918 to 1921 he served in the French army, and then began taking lessons in composition with Koechlin (1921-1924). An excellent pianist, Poulenc became in 1935 an accompanist to the French baritone Pierre Bernac , for whom he wrote numerous songs.

    27. Francis Poulenc - French Choral Composer
    francis poulenc s interest in choral music began in the early 1920 s. During his study with the composer Koechlin, he harmonized Bach chorale melodies.

    Francis Poulenc
    Poulenc behaved like a sophisticated eccentric (he once chatted up a stupefied Cannes bartender about an ingenious harmonic progression he managed to pull off that morning), and the eccentricity not surprisingly showed up in his music. Many have called attention to his split artistic personality, "part monk, part guttersnipe," but really he has many more sides. Like most French composers of his generation, he fell under the influences of Stravinsky and Satie. Yet he doesn't imitate either. You can identify a Poulenc composition immediately with its bright colors, strong, clear rhythms, and gorgeous and novel diatonic harmonies. He is warmer and less intellectual than Stravinsky, more passionate and musically more refined than Satie.
    Some composers, like Beethoven, aim at a Titanic profundity. They rage and storm and consider the universe. Others, like Delius and Ravel, dream of worlds more beautiful than this one. Poulenc, like Haydn and Schubert, is one of the few great composers not only content with, but modestly amazed at being human. The music doesn't strive for the extraordinary, not even the religious music. What's in us is extraordinary enough. There's a sincere simplicity of effect.

    In times of trouble we turn to religion. Indeed, following the recent terrorist attacks American houses of worship reported a huge surge in attendance. For musical inspiration, nearly all the major classical composers included religious works among their significant output and left us a large body of masterpieces from which to chose. Each reflected the fundamental artistic personality of its creator. Thus, Bach's cantatas are devout reflections of the unity and ubiquity of the God who constantly guided his thoughts, Haydn's masses are animated by the same lusty life-affirming vigor as his symphonies and quartets, Beethoven's Missa Solemnis is firm and imposing, Schubert's masses are lyrical and songful, Verdi's Requiem is stormy and operatic, Janacek's Slavonic Mass is fiercely nationalistic and Stravinsky's Mass Stabat Mater is meditative and pastoral throughout.) While religious sentiment infuses the work of many 20th Century composers, few major productions have emerged. Of those, most disdain traditional approaches and ritual for modern cynicism, questioning and testing time-honored assumptions. Thus, Britten's deeply unsettling 1962 War Requiem juxtaposes Latin hymns of faith with the bitter anti-war verses of Wilfred Owen, a poet killed in service near the close of World War I. Similarly, Bernstein's 1963

    by Daryl Lee Born just before the arrival of the 20 th Century to a pharmaceuticals manufacturer whose family business has survived to the 21 st Century, Poulenc began his musical studies early. At the age of five years, he began learning his keyboard skills from his mother. His father's financial success meant that Poulenc's career served his own personal interests more than his need for financial support, leading to a highly unconventional style. It also meant that he was largely self-taught, partly due to the difficulty of finding teachers who can teach the extraordinary. For example, he was recommended to the prestigious Paris Conservatory by Igor Stravinsky, but his application was rejected upon the discovery of his admiration of the composer Erik Satie. He had decided at the age of fourteen that he intended to become a musical composer. Sadly, both of his parents died before any of his compositions were performed in public. He was a relentless perfectionist. He once spent over ten years on a single four-minute song, seeking the perfect musical setting of a text that he believed demanded nothing less. One string quartet found its way to the Paris sewer because he despaired of its ever reaching the level he demanded of himself.

    Poulenc, Francis (1899-1963) One of the first openly gay composers, Francis Poulenc wrote concerti, chamber music, choral and vocal works, and operas. His diverse compositions are characterized by bright colors, strong rhythms, and novel harmonies. Although his early music is light, he ultimately became one of the most thoughtful composers of serious music in the twentieth century. Sponsor Message.
    At the death of his parents, Poulenc inherited Noizay, a country estate near his grandparents' home, which would be an important retreat for him as he gained fame. It was also the source of several men in his life, including his second lover, the bisexual Raymond Destouches, a chauffeur who was the dedicatee of the surrealistic opera (1944) and the World War II Resistance cantata La figure humaine Conscripted into the military in 1918, he continued to compose and, in 1920, became a member of a group of young composers dubbed "Les Six"; the others were Darius Milhaud, Arthur Honegger, Auric, Germaine Tailleferre, and Louis Durey.
