Born in Venezuela, Reynaldo Hahn (1874-1947) grew up in Paris. Composer and musician, he studied under Massenet and obtained initial success in French aristocratic circles by performing works such as the Chansons Grises and the Études Latines. It was in these circles that he struck up some important friendships with leading figures like Marcel Proust. He went on to make a name for himself in the field of opéra comique and operetta.
