Les Six were a group of French composers. They had met at the Paris Conservatoire and became close friends. They were: Francis Poulenc (1899-1963), Darius Milhaud (1892-1974), Arthur Honegger (1892-1955), Georges Auric (1899-1983), Germaine Tailleferre(1892-1983) and Louis Durey (1888-1979). They originally gave concerts together under the name "Les Nouveaux Jeunes" (The New Young People), but later changed their name to Les Six.
