Chausson's Symphony premiered on April 18, 1891, at a concert of the Société Nationale, with the composer conducting. It received a favorable response from the audience that included a powerful contingent of supporters; however, it drew only tepid dismissal from the critics, who had little appreciation for the work of any composer associated with the bande á Franck.

Parisian Jacques Ibert found his voice in impressionistic and neo-classical techniques. Although as a young man Ibert studied piano with his mother, and - without training in composition - composed, his first love was the theatre. While teaching acting at the Paris Conservatoire, he began musical studies with Pessard, Fuaré and Gedalge at the age of twenty. After World War I service in the French Navy, he studied with Paul Vidal and Paris' most popular compositional matriach, Nadia Boulanger. In 1919 he won the coveted Prix de Rome and established a three year residence at the Villa Medici in Rome.
