Real Name:
Johann Paul Aegidius Schwarzendorf
Jean Paul Egide Martini, born 1741-08-31 and died 1816-02-10, was a composer of classical music. He is best known today for the vocal romance "Plaisir d'Amour," on which the 1961 Elvis Presley standard "Can't Help Falling in Love" is based.

Martini was born Johann Paul Aegidius Schwarzendorf in Freystadt, Bavaria, Germany. He adopted the family name Martini after moving to France as a young man. Sometimes he used his aliases Martini Il Tedesco and Giovanni Martini, which has resulted in a confusion with Giovanni Battista Martini, particularly with regard to the composition of Plaisir d'Amour.
