Pierre Sancan (1916-2008) was a French pianist, conductor and composer. He led the piano faculty at the Paris Conservatoire (1956-1985) and was considered as expert interpreter of music by Debussy.
In his compositions (Piano concerto, violin concerto, three ballets, Symphony for Strings and opera Ondine) he sought to combine harmonic language of Debussy with modern techniques. His music was influenced not only by impressionism of Debussy but as well as the tonal tradition of Honegger and Roussel and harmonic language of Messiaen and Dutilleux.
