Ratez, Émile Pierre
Émile Pierre Ratez was a violist, composer, and administrator from France. Ratez was born in Besançon and studied music at the music school there with Pierre De Mol, then at the Conservatoire de Paris with Bazin and Jules Massenet in the 1870s. He became the head of the Paris Conservatory's Lille section in 1891. Chamber music (at least three piano trios, a piano quintet, a cello sonata, at least two violin sonatas, a string trio, for example), a suite for violin and piano, two operas (Lydéric (premiered 1895, Lille) and Paula (premiered 1904, Besançon), and numerous songs and other choral and piano works) are among his works (&c...) Billaudot has reprinted his six Pièces charactéristiques.
