Georges Bizet (1838–1875) was a French composer with a musical family. His mother, a pianist, and his father, a composer and voice teacher, recognized Bizet’s talent early. When he was nine, his father enrolled him in the Paris Conservatory of Music, where he was known as a masterful pianist and an award-winning composer. He wrote more than 150 compositions for the piano, as well as a symphony, orchestral suites, operas, and songs. His final masterpiece, Carmen, an opera that caused an uproar at its 1875 premiere, is now celebrated and performed all over the world.
