About the composer
Marc Eychenne was born in Algiers in 1933. He studied music (solfège, violin and chambermusic) at the Alger Conservatory. In 1954 he won the Grand Prix awarded by the city of Alger for his performance on the violin.
After performing numerous recitals with piano accompaniment and concertos with orchestra, both in Algeria and in France, Marc Eychenne obtained his card as soloist to play chamber music in the French Broadcasting Service in 1963, which allowed him to take part in numerous radio broadcasts in France and abroad.
Gradually his inclination for composition took over from his interest in the violin and, (beginning with his first piece, an Andante expressivo for violin and piano written at the age of twelve), Eychenne’s compositions increased with the passing of the years: chamber music, orchestral music, vocal music (Requiem) and music for children.
