Maurice_Jarre’s Biography

Maurice Jarre was interested quite late in the music. In 1946 he debuted in the company Renaud-Barralt, forming a duet with Pierre Boulez (piano and waves Martenot).

His career as a composer began in 1948, with music for the show Le Gardien du Tombe, by Franz Kafka. A little later he went on to play the musical direction of the Théâtre National Populaire in Paris (1951-1963).

In 1952 he quickly became a popular and respected composer in France and the European continent thanks to his first soundtrack for film Hôtel des Invalides.

The world recognition came a decade later, when he was hired to compose the soundtrack of the epic Lawrence of Arabia (1962), by David Lean, with which he won an Oscar for the best original soundtrack and that would become one of the most recognized film themes of all time. From his collaboration with Lean would also emerge works such as the soundtracks of Doctor Zhivago (1965) and Passage to India (1984) (which brought him two more Oscars in the same category), as well as Ryan’s daughter (1970). < / p>

Among his soundtracks for other films include The Longest Day (1962), The Professionals (1966), Grand Prix (1966), Topaz (1969), The judge of the gallows (1972), The man who could reign (1975), The Message (1976), Jesus of Nazareth (1977), Witness (1985), The Coast of the Mosquitoes (1986), Fatal Attraction (1987), Gorillas in the Mist (1988), The Club of the Poets dead (Dead Poets Society) (1989), Ghost (1990) and A walk through the clouds (1995).

Jarre wrote mainly for orchestras, but during the 80s he began to try synthesized music. For this reason he received some criticism that he did it more for comfort than aesthetics. He himself denied it, pointing out that his work in Witness, for example, was more laborious than if it had been orchestral. Jarre’s electronic soundtracks also include Fatal Attraction, The Year We Live Dangerously, No Way Out, Gorillas in the Mist, The Dead Poets Society and Jacob’s Ladder. In several of these works he received advice from his son Jean Michel, composer of electronic music.

In 2003 he announced his definitive withdrawal from musical composition for the cinema.

On the occasion of the Berlin Film Festival in 2009, where he received a Golden Bear for his entire career, Jarre made his last appearance in public. Victim of a cancer, died on March 29 of that same year in Los Angeles, United States.

He was also the father of French electronic music composer Jean-Michel Jarre (born of his marriage to France Pejot), as well as Stefanie Jarre (with French actress Dany Saval) and American film screenwriter Kevin Jarre (adopted after his marriage to the American Laura Devon).
