Marin Marais

May 31, 1656 - August 15, 1728
born in Paris, France, composed during the Baroque period
Marin Marais (1656-1728) was the most celebrated bass viol player of his time, and he left a legacy of more than 600 works, many for his instrument. Living his entire life in Paris, Marais studied viol with the famed Sainte-Colombe, and eventually achieved the position of "Regular Violist for the King," which he held from 1679 to 1725. He was an orchestral musician in Lully's operas, and their association led Marais to compose four five-act operas of his own. But he is remembered today for his various viol collections, which gathered his character pieces, dances, rondeaux, chaconnes, fantasies, and tombeaux. ~ Blair Sanderson, Rovi

I came across Marais' and Sainte Columbe's music as a result of their inclusion in the score of the film, Tous les matins du monde. I am forever grateful; they have certainly 'expanded my ears'...

This indeed was the soundrack for the movie Tous Les Matines Du Monde performed by Jordi Saval.

Other than the harpsicord, lute and violin this has to be my favorite type of baroque music.

One of the greats! His music is consistently inspired and substantive. . . . H e is in my top ten favorite composers. For the uninitated, rent the movie 'All The Mornings of the World" it is about the life of Marin Marais and won 8 french oscars ("Cesars")
