HENRI TOMASI  

(1901 - 1971)

Henri Tomasi was born in Marseilles on 17 August 1901. He studied first at the conservatory in his home city and then at the Paris Conservatory, where he won the Prix de Rome in 1927. He then followed a double career as conductor and composer. He conducted many of the finest orchestras, performing his own music and that of Saint-Saens, Gluck, Massenet, Ravel, Debussy, Wagner and many others throughout Europe. It was, however, composing that meant the most to him and he established himself with such works as Cymos, Tam-Tam, and Vocero. Among his major works are the Requiem pour la paix and the Concerto pour guitare et orchestra, a la memoire d'un poete assassine ('in memory of Federico Garcia Lorca'). Many of his other compositions, such as the Chant pour le Viet-Nam ('Song for Vietnam'), are based on-European subjects. He died in Paris in 1971.
