Darius Milhaud
Birth: Sep. 4, 1892
Marseille
Departement des Bouches-du-Rhône
Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France
Death: Jun. 22, 1974
Geneva
Geneve, Switzerland

Composer. A member of "Les Six", his music combined classical form with polytonality and frequent use of popular idioms. He is best-known for his theatre works, among them the ballets "The Ox on the Roof" (1920) and the jazz-flavored "The Creation of the World" (1923), and the opera-oratorio "Christophe Colomb" (1930). As a Jew Milhaud had to flee France in 1940 and spent the World War II years on the faculty of Mills College in Oakland, California. He returned to Paris in 1947, by which time arthritis left him confined to a wheelchair. Nevertheless he continued to teach at Mills one semester a year and to travel all over the world conducting his music. He died at 81 while vacationing in Switzerland. Milhaud's 425 opuses include 15 operas, 13 ballets, 12 symphonies, 18 string quartets and scores of pieces in many other genres. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
