César-Auguste-Jean-Guillaume-Hubert Franck (1822 –1890)

César-Auguste-Jean-Guillaume-Hubert Franck (1822 –1890) was born in Belgium, but spent his adult life in Paris, where he was an organist, a pianist, and a composer. He was well-known for his improvisational skills. His father was overbearing in his attempt to control César Franck’s professional musical life, leading to the disruption of their relationship. He is perhaps most popularly known for “Panis Angelicus.” He is known among organists for his contributions to modern literature for the organ.  He was a great champion of chamber music (music for small groups of instruments).
