French player of Ondes Martenot. Sister of [a=Yvonne Loriod], pianist and wife of [a=Olivier Messiaen], whose "Turangalîla Symphony" Jeanne Loriod recorded six times.

She was the leading exponent of the ondes Martenot, invented in the 1920es by Maurice Martenot. She played with the most famous orchestras and conductors around the world, premiering more than 100 works by [a=André Jolivet], [a=Arthur Honegger] or [a=Jacques Charpentier] to name but a few.

The ondes martenot became famous for a wide audience through two scores by [a=Maurice Jarre], "Lawrence of Arabia" and "Mad Max".

In 1974 she founded an ensemble of 2, 4, 6 or 12 ondes Martenot players, called the Sextuor Jeanne Loriod.

Shortly before she died, she was to perform with the British band Radiohead.
