César Franck was born on December 10, 1822, in Liège, Netherlands. He entered the Liège conservatory at age 8 and later attended the Paris Conservatory. He left early to perform with his brother, which was ultimately a setback for his career. He became an organ professor at the Paris Conservatory in 1872. His compositions, such as Symphony in D Minor, are noted for their melodic flights. He died in 1890.
