Biography

Georges Bizet, the genius

The composer of the famous Carmen, Bizet, was destined for a successful career. He benefitted fully from his gifted relations, his singing-teacher father, pianist mother and uncle who was a singer. A special dispensation was made for Bizet to start the Paris Conservatoire at the exceptional age of seven where he rapidly achieved the Premier Prix for theory of music, piano, fugue and organ. A remarkable pianist, Hector Berlioz and Franz Liszt admired him. In 1858, he was awarded the first Prix de Rome and was destined for a successful career.
