Mariotte, a conductor, composer and administrator, "abandoned a naval career to study composition under d'lndy at the Schola Cantorum and held conducting posts as well as teaching the piano in the conservatories at Lyons and Orléans. From 1936 to 1939 he was director of the Opéra-Comique ... Although he was primarily a vocal composer, his Impressions urbaines, adorned with a cover depicting modern-day town scenes, are an unusual example of instrumental realism." Richard Langham Smith in Grove Music Online.
