Louis Durey
Birth: May 27, 1888
Death: Jul. 3, 1979

Composer. The least-known member of "Les Six." His refusal to contribute to their collective ballet "The Marriage on the Eiffel Tower" (1921) occasioned the breakup of the group, though the composers all remained friends. A politically-oriented man (he became a hard-line communist in the 1930s), Durey felt music should have a didactic purpose and wrote several choruses based on Marxist texts. This attitude, combined with a distaste for self-promotion, ensured his obscurity. He spent most of his life in Saint-Tropez and died there. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
