Paul Paray
 Together with Pierre Monteux and Charles Munch, Paul Paray was one of the three greatest French conductors of the 20th Century. Paul Paray was born on May 24, 1886 in Le Triport. In 1911, he competed for the "Grand Prix de Rome": he obtained the "Premier Grand Prix" for his cantata, Yanitza. The jury included Camille Saint Saens, Gabriel Pierne, Charles-Marie Widor and Gabriel Faure, all of whom held him in great esteem. He was called to join his regiment in 1914. He was taken prisoner and sent for several years' internment in the camp at Darmstadt. On October 17, 1920, he became Chief Conductor of the "Orchestre Lamoureux". Many young soloists would owe their Paris debut to him, among them Jascha Heifetz, Nathan Milstein and Yehudi Menuhin. His concerts regularly featured the works of Chausson,Debussy, Faure, Ibert, Pierne, Ravel and Florent Schmitt. In 1928, he was offered the post of Music Director at Monte Carlo. In 1939 he attended the World Fair in New York as the official representative of France. The concert at which he directed the New York Philharmonic Orchestra was so impressive that the post of co conductor of the N. B. C. Symphony Orchestra was offered to him then and there. With the outbreak of war Paul Paray elected to return to France. He directed the "Orchestre National" which had taken refuge in Limoges. In 1951 he took over the direction of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, he finally won international recognition, in the wake of the recordings made by Mercury. By November 20, 1952, Leopold Stokowski as guest conductor told the press that it was "one af the greatest orchestras in the world". After 1963, he continued to make appearances all over the world as a guest conductor. When he was over 90 he appeared regularly in Israel to conduct the same program twelve consecutive times. He died in October, 1979, while he was making ready to conduct the "Orchestre de Monte-Carlo" and the "Orchestre de Paris", and still had plans to record works by Tchaikovsky with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.  Insieme a Pierre Monteux ed a Charles Munch, Paul Paray era uno dei tre conduttori francesi pi grandi del ventesimo secolo.
