Henri Duparc

Duparc, Henri (äNrēˈ düpärkˈ) [key], 1848–1933, French composer. Duparc studied piano with César Franck and became one of his first composition pupils. A nervous disorder caused him to cease composing in 1885. He spent the rest of his life in Switzerland. Extremely self-critical, Duparc destroyed many of his works, so that only a handful remain. His fame rests entirely on the 14 beautiful songs he wrote between 1868 and 1884.

See S. Northcote, The Songs of Henri Duparc (1949).
