Vincent Scotto (21 April 1874 – 15 November 1952) was a French composer.[1]


Early life

Vincent Scotto was born on 21 April 1874 in Marseille to Pasquale Scotto d'Aniello and Antonia Intartaglia, from the island of Procida, north of the Gulf of Naples.[2]


He started his career in Marseille in 1906 and later moved to Paris. Over the course of a lifetime, he wrote 4,000 songs as well as 60 operettas. He was friends with Marcel Pagnol and wrote music for his films. Over time, he wrote music for about fifty films in the 1940s and 1950s, and he sometimes appeared in them as an actor.[3]

In 1973, a biographical TV film was broadcast, La Vie rêvée de Vincent Scotto.[4]


He died on 15 November 1952 in Paris.
