Combarieu, Jules

 

Born Feb. 3, 1859, in Cahors; died July 7, 1915, in Paris. French music scholar.

Combarieu researched ancient French secular music. He is the author of the fundamental study History of Music From Its Origins to the Beginning of the Twentieth Century (vols. 1–3, 1913–19; Russian translation, chapters from vol. 1 in Frantsuzskaia muzyka XVI veka, 1932) and such works on music theory as The Relationship Between Music and Poetry (1894), Essay in Musical Philology (vols. 1–3,1897–1909), and Music: Its Laws and Evolution (1907). Despite the wealth of factual material and careful musical analysis in his works, Combarieu maintained an idealistic interpretation of the laws of the development of music.
