From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Reynaldo Hahn, born on August 9, 1874 in Caracas, Venezuela, died on January 28, 1947 in Paris, France, was a German - Venezuelan composer, conductor and a music critic. He was also the lover of Marcel Proust. He wrote in the French classical song tradition, with a fin de siècle flavour, including the precocious 'Si mes vers avaient des ailes', the delicious homage to Bach 'A Chloris' and a powerful setting of Victor Hugo's 'Quand la nuit n'est pas etoilée'. He also wrote operettas, chamber music and orchestral compositions.
