César-Auguste-Jean-Guillaume-Hubert Franck (10 December 1822 – 8 November 1890) was a composer, pianist, organist, andmusic teacher who worked in Paris during his adult life.

He was born at Liège, in what is now Belgium (though at the time of his birth it was under the Netherlands' control). In that cityhe gave his first concerts in 1834. He studied privately in Paris from 1835, where his teachers included Anton Reicha. After abrief return to Belgium, and a disastrous reception to an early oratorio Ruth, he moved to Paris, where he married andembarked on a career as teacher and organist. He gained a reputation as a formidable improviser, and travelled widely inFrance to demonstrate new instruments built by Aristide Cavaillé-Coll.

In 1858 he became organist at Sainte-Clotilde, a position he retained for the rest of his life. He became professor at the ParisConservatoire in 1872; he took French nationality, a requirement of the appointment. His pupils included Vincent d'Indy, ErnestChausson, Louis Vierne, Charles Tournemire, Guillaume Lekeu, and Henri Duparc. After acquiring the professorship Franckwrote several pieces that have entered the standard classical repertoire, including symphonic, chamber, and keyboard works. « hide
