Francis Thomé 18.10.1850-16.11.1909

Francis Thomé was a French pianist and composer. He studied at the Paris Conservatoire with Jules Laurent Duprato and Ambroise Thomas. After leaving the Conservatoire he became well known as a composer of salon pieces and was in demand as a pianist and teacher. His music was particularly successful in the French provinces, and two of his operas were first performed outside Paris. He became popular towards the end of the 19th Century as a composer of accompanied poems, but is also known for his stage works which encompassed various genres, including ballet, pantomime, incidental music (for a wide range of plays), bleuettes, and operettas, such as Baron Fric (1886).
