Early life: Donald Macleod charts the life of French composer Vincent d'Indy. Although his entire life was subject to Cesar Franck's influence as a teacher and spiritual guide, d'Indy became a well respected theorist, writer and teacher in his own right. He was a tireless champion of French music and did more than anyone else to further its appeal both in France and abroad. Although relatively few works get heard regularly, as a composer he left a body of work which includes thirteen operas, several music dramas, songs, chamber music, piano works and symphonies.
