Rene Maillard (b4/08/1931)

Born on 8 April 1931 in Bois-Colombes, on the outskirts of Paris, René Maillard received his secondary schooling at the Collège Gay-Lussac in Limoges during the Second World War. He remembers perfectly his very first violin teacher in that city, Charles Paillier, whom he continues to hold in high esteem. He went on to become a student of Arthur Hoérée (1897–1986), professor of composition at the Ecole Normale de Musique and friend of Albert Roussel and Arthur Honegger, whom he described as a ‘brilliant character’. He also attended the Versailles Conservatoire, where he benefited from the teaching of Aimé Steck (winner of the Prix de Rome in 1922) in his composition class, before entering the Paris Conservatoire. There, he studied harmony, counterpoint and fugue with Samuel-Rousseau and Noël Gallon, obtaining first prize in each before enrolling in Tony Aubin’s composition class. In 1955 he competed for the Prix de Rome with Le rire de Gargantua, a lyric scene on a libretto by Randal Lemoine based on Rabelais, which was awarded the ‘Second Grand Prix’. The work was performed on 28 June 1955 by the Orchestra of the Opéra-Comique under the direction of Jean Fournet, with soloists René Bianco, Louis Rialland and Jacqueline Cauchard.
