The French composer Emile Paladilhe was born in
Montpellier June 3, 1844. He entered the Paris
Conservatory at the age of nine and in 1857 was awarded
the first prize in piano. Three years later in 1860, he
received the first prize in organ at the Paris
Conservatory, and that same year he won the Prix de
Rome for his cantata Le Czar Ivan IV.
Paladilhe wrote several works for the "Opera Comique",
as well as sacred works, songs and orchestral
compositions. His opera, Patrie was his most
successful work. In January 1881, Paladilhe was
decorated by the Legion of Honour, and in 1892 he
succeeded Guiraud as member of the Institut de France.
He died on January 8, 1926 in Paris.
Paladilhe's Solo de Concert (or Concertante) was
