André Jolivet studied at the University of Paris under Varèse.

With Olivier Messiaen, Daniel Lesur and Yves Baudrier, he founded the Jeune France group of composers who aimed to re-establish a more humanized style of composition.

As director of music for the Comédie Française he wrote a quantity of incidental music.

He was appointed a professor of composition at the Paris Conservatoire in 1965.

His compositions reflect his interest in the sonorities of instruments and are transparent and dissonant.
