GermaineTailleferre

One of the lesser known members of the so-called Groupe des Six.
In Paris in the 1920s, Germaine Tailleferre was associated directly with Auric, Honegger and Milhaud in Cocteau's satirical Les maries de la Tour Eiffel. Influenced by the clarity and simplicity of Satie, and by her teacher Ravel, she wrote music that later ventured into explorations of new techniques, without ever deserting her original inspiration.
She left a large volume of works.
