Jean Gabriel Prosper Marie (8 January 1852, Paris – 29 August 1928, Puigcerdà, Girona, Spain) was a French romantic composer and conductor.
Gabriel-Marie was born in Paris on January 8, 1852, where he studied at the Conservatoire de Paris and held a prominent position in the local musical world. He died unexpectedly on August 29, 1928. He was the father of the composer Jean Gabriel Marie.
Gabriel-Marie's works include La Cinquantaine ("The Golden Wedding", 1887) for cello and piano, for octet, and in various other arrangements. He also composed many dance pieces, notably the waltz Sous les firnes ("Under the Ash Trees", 1884) and the highly original polka Frais minois ("Fresh Face"). Sérénade Badine achieved some popularity by its numerous arrangements, including those for saxophone and piano, and cello and piano, as did other chamber works and light works for orchestra.
