A native of Languedoc, it is in the Béziers region where he was born May 13, 1921 Roger Calmel accomplishes his early musical training. In 1944 he moved to Paris to study composition at the school Caesar Franck, before entering the Paris Conservatoire where he attended particular classes of Olivier Messiaen (Aesthetics) and Darius Milhaud (composition). He completed his training still in contact with Pierre Schaeffer, around the Studio Test Radio. The following years saw the emergence of the first major works, get some important distinctions (First Prize of the City of Paris for the Concerto Grosso for saxophone quartet and orchestra in 1958, First Prize of the National Confederation of France in 1959, Grand Prix of the International Composition Competition of Divonne in 1960 with Tribute to Gossec, Grand Prix of chamber music of the Institut de France in 1976). It was at this time that really says the musical personality of Roger Calmel, through an atonal language of gasoline, nor yet denying that polytonality or the use of tonal pivots. In 1963, Roger Calmel was appointed professor at the Master of the RTF and, from 1979 to 1991, director of the Conservatoire Darius Milhaud in the south of Paris. From 1991 to 1998 he was Inspector of Workshops Musicals of the City of Paris. These educational activities were not without influence on the career of the musician, who now directed (from 1980s) much of its activity to writing numerous works of vocal music, at the request of HQ core movement joy and festivals and choral. This orientation was the cause of stylistic changes, manifested through a clear writing, reflecting particular attention polyphonic. This same trend (directed, like many contemporary composers to greater simplicity), which has always guided the approach of the composer Roger Calmel, an approach that does address all genres, from chamber music at the opera. Calmel s Roger died in 1998. He is buried in Creissan (Hérault).
