Jean-Paul-Égide was a composer of classical music born in 1741. He was sometimes known as Martini Il Tedesco or Giovanni Martini – not to be confused with Giovanni Battista Martini (especially when referring to Plaisir d’Armour).
Plaisir d’Amour is a classical French love song and was written in 1784, the text is taken from a poem by Jean-Pierre Claris de Florian (1755–1794), which appears in his novel Célestine.
The song was best known in Martini’s version and consequently he is best known for this piece due to Elvis Presley basing his “Can’t Help Falling in Love” 1961 song on it which became incredibly popular.
