✴➡️-From @ghmusicfreak - Jacques François Antoine Marie Ibert (15 August 1890 – 5 February 1962) was a #French composer. Having studied music from an early age, he studied at the Paris Conservatoire and won its top prize, the Prix de Rome at his first attempt, despite studies interrupted by his service in World War I.
#JacquesIlbert pursued a successful composing career, writing (sometimes in collaboration with other composers) seven operas, five ballets, incidental music for plays and films, songs, choral works, and chamber music.
As a #composer, #Ibert did not attach himself to any of the prevalent genres of music of his time, and has been described as an eclectic. This is seen even in his best-known pieces: 'Divertissement', for small orchestra is lighthearted, even frivolous, and 'Escales' (1922) is a ripely romantic work for large orchestra.
