Maurice Thiriet

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Maurice Thiriet (French: [tiʁje]; 2 May 1906 – 28 September 1972) was a French composer of classical and film music.


Born in Meulan, Yvelines, he entered the Paris conservatory in 1925 to study counterpoint and fugue with Charles Koechlin and orchestration and arrangement under Alexis Roland-Manuel. He graduated in 1931. During the forties Thiriet carved his career within film music, inspired by fellow composer Maurice Jaubert (who died in World War II), and wrote something like seventy scores from 1942 to 1960. Apart from his film work, Thiriet also composed several concert works, including a Flute concerto, twelve ballets and three operas. His style, which was influenced by Jaubert and Roland-Manuel, is characterized by taught construction and modest, nearly impressionistic harmonization and often bears a classical grace not unlike that of Francis Poulenc and Jean Françaix. His work was also part of the music event in the art competition at the 1948 Summer Olympics.[1]
