Paule Charlotte Marie Jeanne Maurice (29 September 1910 – 18 August 1967) was a French composer.

Her most famous composition is the suite Tableaux de Provence pour saxophone et orchestre written between 1948 and 1955 dedicated to saxophone virtuoso, Marcel Mule. It is most often heard as a piano reduction. It was premiered on 9 December 1958 by Jean-Marie Londeix with the Orchestre Symphonique Brestois directed by Maurice's husband, and fellow composer, Pierre Lantier.

Maurice and Pierre Lantier wrote a treatise on harmony entitled Complément du Traité d'Harmonie de Reber that became an important reference work in France and abroad. It was intended to be used in conjunction with the 1862 treatise of Napoléon Henri Reber entitled Traité d'Harmonie.

In November 1933 the Austrian physicist Erwin Schrodinger moved from Berlin to Oxford with his wife and his heavily pregnant live-in mistress.

A few days later he heard that he’d won a Nobel Prize for his work on a mathematical equation that seemed to validate a new theory about the behaviour of subatomic - or quantum - particles… So why in 1935 did he try to demonstrate the craziness of quantum theory by creating a thought experiment in which a cat in a box is simultaneously both dead and alive? And why – given his opposition to Nazism – did he decide to take up a university post in Vienna in 1936?

Magic and illusion take over Schrodinger’s life as we watch him trying to steer a course between quantum mechanics and general relativity … between free love and conventional marriage … and, catastrophically, between disdain for Hitler and apparent acceptance of his values. Cats will appear and then disappear … all to appropriate musical accompaniment.
