     Rauber, Francois (19th January 1933-14th December 2003)

    He was a conductor, musical director, orchestrator and composer born in Neufchateau, Vosges, France.  He studied piano at the Paris Conservatory and in 1951 went onto the cabaret circuit and worked with artists such as Serge Gainsbourg and Boris Vian and this also led him to working regularly during his lifetime with the Belgian composer Jacques Brel,  He conducted many orchestras and choir during his lifetime including the children's choir Les Petits Chanteurs de Saint-Laurent and studio ensembles that performed the soundtracks of many movies and television programmes including Play Time and Jacques Brel is Alive and Living in Paris, and the entry for the French entry of the Eurovision Song Contest in 1983 and 1984.  As a composer his work has been much heard in television and movies with his works appearing on at least 14 productions, which include the series Belle and Sebastian, Le Vagabonde and Grand-Pere Viking and the films Franz, Far West and L'Emmerdeur.  His numerous recordings include Children's Songs, Musical Feeling, French Music for Brass Quintet & Wind Band, Mega Cinema and Maurice Andre: Les Plus Beaux Noels and Les Bonbons and Quand On N'a Que l'Amour with Jacques Brel.
