Jean Françaix, one of the most classically French composers of the 20th century and a disarming musical wit, was born in 1912 to the head of the Le Mans Conservatoire and one of its singing teachers. By the age of 6 he was composing. Françaix had emerged from the Paris Conservatoire with first prize in piano and for much of his life travelled as a concert pianist. That he was able to perform primarily his own works was down to a sensational early success in 1932, when he premiered his Concertino in Baden-Baden.
