Celebrate the life of one of the most prolific composers of the 20th century, Darius Milhaud, who passed away on this day in 1974. Milhaud lived in Brazil during the First World War, which lead him to write Brazilian-themed compositions, such as 'Saudades do Brasil'. He was then part of the famed group of French composers in the 20s, called 'Les Six', which included the likes of Francis Poulenc and Arthur Honegger. In this period he wrote one his best known pieces, the ballet 'Le Bœuf sur le toit', which lends its name to the legendary cabaret in Paris they frequented. Jazz was a big influence on him, which can be heard in his ballet 'La Création du Monde'. He was also a famed teacher, teaching the likes of Dave Brubeck and Burt Bacharach, and at the Paris Conservatoire.
