Jean-Claude Petit

After accompanying jazzmen in his childhood, Petit went to the Conservatoire de Paris, where he studied harmony and counterpoint. He did the string arrangements for Mink DeVille's Le Chat Bleu album, as well as orchestrating the backing parts to some French pop singles in the mid- to late 1960s, including those of Erick Saint-Laurent and yé-yé girls Christine Pilzer and Monique Thubert.

In addition, he was a frequent collaborator with French film music composer Jack Arel: the pair's most well-known production, "Psychedelic Portrait", was featured in an episode of the cult TV series The Prisoner.

His highly acclaimed score for Cyrano de Bergerac remains perhaps his best known work internationally. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
