Jean Cras is a French composer (1879-1932) who knew how to reconcile a double existence, since he was above all a naval officer. He began to compose at the age of 13, entered the Naval Academy at 17, and came out to spend most of his time at sea, taking advantage of leisure time to compose.

Listening, we can risk associating him with a better known composer like Debussy or his friend and master Henri Duparc, whom we will undoubtedly have the opportunity to introduce you to on this site.

Be that as it may, it is not easy to reconcile a life as a sailor and a life as a composer, but there is no doubt that Jean Cras did both very well…
