Jean-Christophe (1904 - 1912) is the novel in ten volumes (divided into three series: Jean-Christophe, Jean-Christophe à Paris, and la Fin du voyage) by Romain Rolland for which he received the Prix Femina in 1905, the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1915. The first four volumes (L'Aube, Le Matin, L'Adolescent, La Révolte) are sometimes grouped as Jean-Christophe. The central character, Jean-Christophe Krafft, is a great German musician of Belgian extraction, a composer of genius whose life is depicted from cradle to grave. He undergoes great hardships and spiritual struggles, balancing his pride in his own talents with the necessity of earning a living and taking care of those around him. He is forced by circumstances to leave when he is 16-18 years old, living outside of Germany in Paris, Switzerland, etc. He finally finds peace in a remote corner of Switzerland before returning in triumph to Paris a decade later. Rolland's most famous novel brings "together his interests and ideals in the story of a German musical genius who makes France his second home and becomes a vehicle for Rolland's views on music, social matters and understanding between nations". CD performance based on the volumes from the first series.
