Ibert Jacques

Jacques Ibert (1890 - 1962) was a French composer who studied composition with Paul Vidal at the Paris Conservatory. After the World War I during which he served as a naval officer at Dunkirk, Ibert won the Prix de Rome composition competition in 1919 and was able further to pursue his career as a composer. One of his most known orchestral works, symphonic poem Escales (Port of call) was written during that time (1922) and brought him recognition.
Besides prolific career as a composer during which he wrote seven operas, five ballets, works for orchestra, chamber music etc. Ibert was talented administrator. He was the director of the Académie de France at the Villa Medici in Rome (1937-1960), and for almost a year ran the Réunion des Théâtres Lyriques Nationaux, which administrated both the Paris Opera and the Opéra-Comique. As opposed to many other French composers of that time Ibert didn't join any musical movements, trying to maintain his musical independency. Thus, his musical style has been described as an eclectic.
