C & eacute;sar Franck was born in Liege on 10 December 1822 and died in Paris on 8 November 1890. His father moved to Paris so that his son might further develop his musical gifts under Fran & ccedil;ois Benoist at the Conservatoire.
From here Franck emerged as an exceptionally talented organist and pianist, a teacher endowed with formidable powers of communication and inspiration, and a compulsive composer. Some of his finest and most profound music is to be found among his compositions for the organ.
