Maurice Jarre


Maurice-Alexis Jarre (13 September 1924 – 28 March 2009) was a French composer and conductor, “one of the giants of 20th-century film music” who was “among the most sought-after composers in the movie industry” and “a creator of both subtle underscoring and grand, sweeping themes, not only writing for conventional orchestras… but also experimenting with electronic sounds later in his career”.


Although he composed several concert works, Jarre is best known for his film scores, particularly for his collaborations with film director David Lean. Jarre composed the scores to all of Lean’s films from Lawrence of Arabia(1962) on. Notable scores for other directors include The Train (1964), Mohammad, Messenger of God (1976), Lion of the Desert (1981), Witness (1985) and Ghost (1990).
