The celebrated French composer Pierre Henry was born on December 9, 1927, in Paris, France. He began training at the Paris Conservatoire at the age of ten, studying piano under Nadia Boulanger and percussion under Felix Passerone while also attending the classes of Olivier Messiaen. In 1949, he joined the staff of the RTF electronic studio, founded by Pierre Schaeffer five years earlier. He soon immersed himself completely in electronic music, heading the Groupe de Research de Musique Concrète throughout the greater part of the 1950s. During 1949 and 1958, he wrote the 1950 piece Symphonie pour un homme seul, in cooperation with Schaeffer. And now, you may download Pierre Henry's Symphonie pour un homme seul in mp3 from our site.
