French woman composer who was the only woman member of the group of young composers, "The Six." She composed her first piano piece at the age of five and started her piano concerto performances in Europe and the U.S. in 1924. From 1942-1946, she lived in the U.S., teaching and composing. Blessed with natural grace, her music was composed with charm, spontaneity and freshness.

She married twice; her first husband, Ralph Barton 1925-31, committed suicide shortly after their divorce. Her second husband was a French lawyer; one daughter.

It was not an easy life, she had to work hard to keep up her creative output and survive financially.

In her 90s, Tailleferre was still spry and youthful, living with a granddaughter, two cats and a dog.

She died 11/07/1983, Paris, France.
