Jean Fournet (b1913)

Jean Fournet’s father was a distinguished flautist and a respected musician, who taught his son the flute with remarkable results: by the age of fifteen Jean was playing second flute in the Orchestra of the Théâtre des Arts in his home town of Rouen. After studying with Gaston Blacquart he entered the flute class of Philippe Gaubert at the Paris Conservatoire, and then that of Marcel Moyse, gaining the first prize for flute playing at the end of his second year. Then, while studying composition he found himself in the conducting class of his old teacher Gaubert: once again he took the first prize and quickly entered the world of what the French call the théâtre lyrique which covers musical comedy, operetta and opera, and which proved to be an excellent training ground for the young conductor. His first appointment was at Rouen in 1938, and two years later he was conducting at Marseilles. As well as appearing in the French provinces, Fournet conducted the major French symphony orchestras in concerts and radio broadcasts; he also taught conducting at the École Normale in Paris from 1944 onwards.
