Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Florent Schmitt (September 28, 1870 - August 17, 1958) was a French composer. A Lorrainer, born in Meurthe-et-Moselle, Schmitt originally took music lessons in Nancy with the local composer Gustave Sandr . Subsequently (at the age of 19) he entered the Paris Conservatoire. There he studied with Gabriel Faur, Jules Massenet, Th odore Dubois, and Albert Lavignac. In 1900 he won the Prix de Rome. From 1929 to 1939 Schmitt worked as a music critic for Le Temps, in which role he created considerable controversy, not least for his indiscreet habit of shouting out verdicts from his seat in the hall. The music publisher Heugel went so far as to call him "an irresponsible lunatic."
