Maurice Jaubert (on the piano, 1937)


French musician, a leading film composer of the 1930s. Sparse and subtle, his soundtracks were noted for their mood-enhancing ability, and he worked with some of the most important filmmakers of the era, including Rene Clair and Julien Duvivier. His recordings include "Pays du Scalp," 1929, "Easter Island," 1934 and "We Live in Two Worlds," 1937.

The son of Francois Jaubert, a lawyer, Maurice was educated at Massena College and obtained his degrees in 1915 and 1916. He then attended the Academy of Nice where he studied the piano and won first prize in 1916. He spent the next three years in Paris completing his law studies, and in 1919, he became the youngest lawyer in France. In April 1920, he signed up for military service, and in October 1921, he was promoted, becoming an officer. In 1922, his military duty ended, and he went back to work as a lawyer. The following summer, however, he decided to give up his legal practice and concentrate on music.

Jaubert was married to Marthe Brega, a professional singer. They married in 1926 and had a daughter in 1927.

After his active military service ended, he became a captain in the reserves, and on 2 September 1939, his unit was remobilized. He was killed in action during WW II on 19 June 1940, Azerailles, France.
