Along with Poulenc and Milhaud he was a member of Le Groupe des Six and attained a certain notoriety with his composition Pacific 2.3.1, a musical representation of a steam locomotive.

Although he earned popular acclaim early in his career, in his later years his consistently tonal musical language was considered outmoded. His most significant works include five symphonies- a large body of chamber music- and several large-scale oratorios that combine choral and instrumental writing with declaimed narrative in a uniquely effective way. He was also among the first composers to write scores for films, including Abel Gances masterpiece Napolé on.
