Philippe Parès (1 January 1901 – 2 February 1979) was an 20th-century French composer of film scores, d'operettas and light music.
The son of Gabriel Parès, music conductor of the Republican Guard, Philippe Parès met Georges Van Parys in the beginning of the 20s. Georges Van Parys, one year younger, commenced from 1925 to compose little pieces (one-act operettas or musical sketches) and songs. In 1927, they collaborated for the first time on La Petite dame du train bleu, which was created in Lyon. The same year, Lulu was presented in Paris, at the Théâtre Daunou. They worked together until 1931. In particular, they wrote the music for the film The Million by René Clair, in collaboration with Armand Bernard.
Philippe Parès then made a career as a producer of records and music publisher (ambience and film music, education, works for children ...). He produced, particularly around 1928-1929, several important scores of the late silent film era: La Femme et le Pantin by Jacques de Baroncelli and The Passion of Joan of Arc by Carl Dreyer (music by Victor Alix and Léo Pouget), among others.
