Paul Alexandre Camille Chevillard (14 October 1859 – 30 May 1923) was a French composer and conductor.[1]

Biography[edit]

He was born in Paris. He conducted the Orchestre Lamoureux in the premieres of Claude Debussy's Nocturnes (1900 and 1901) and La mer (1905), and promoted the music of Albéric Magnard.[2] He was the son-in-law of the conductor Charles Lamoureux: in 1888 he married Lamoureux's daughter Marguerite.[3] He died in Chatou.
