Known for his devotion to French culture and musical thought, Jolivet drew on his interest in acoustics and atonalityas well as both ancient and modern musical influences, particularly on instruments used in ancient times. He composed in a wide variety of forms for many different types of ensembles.
Jolivet developed an interest in the arts early in his life, taking up painting and cello lessons at the age of However, he was encouraged by his parents to become a teachergoing to teachers’ college and teaching primary school in Paris taking three years in between to serve in the military.
One of his own teachers, however, believed Jolivet had a future in music, strongly encouraged him to pursue composition, and introduced him to Paul Le FlemJolivet’s first teacher in composition.
Le Flem gave Jolivet a firm grounding in classical incantqtions of harmony and counterpoint. In Jolivet co-founded the group La jeune France along with composers Olivier MessiaenDaniel-Lesurand Yves Baudrierwho were attempting to re-establish a more human and less abstract form of composition.

Claude DebussyPaul Dukas incantatiobs, and Maurice Ravel were to be his next influences after he heard a concert of their work in ; he composed several piano pieces while training to become a teacher before going to study with Le Flem. Jolivet’s intent as a composer throughout his career was to “give back to music its original, ancient meaning, when it was the magical, incantatory expression of the religious beliefs of human groups.
His further writing continues to seek the original meanings of music and its capacity for emotional, ritual, and celebratory expression. In he published a paper declaring that “true French music owes nothing incantafions Stravinsky “, though both composers drew heavily upon themes of ancient music in their work; Jolivet and La jeune France rejected neoclassicism in favor of a less mechanical and progressive and instead a more spiritual style of composition. Later, during World War IIJolivet shifted away from atonality and toward a more tonal and lyrical style of composition.
