Gabriel Pierné

Posted by: In: Composers 28 Apr 2011 Comments: 1 Tags:


The french composer Gabriel Pierné (1863-1937) moved in the very center of the french music scene. He studied at the Conservatoire in Paris with César Franck and Jules Massenet, was a friend of Camile Saint-Saens and conducted numerous world premieres of his contemporary fellow composers.

Not only  Strawinsky‘s „Firebird“ at the Ballet Russes, but the works of Debussy, Ravel, Milhaud, Enesco and many more as well. He won the prestigious Prix de Rome, was appointed member of the Academie des Beaux Arts, received the french Legion d‘honneur and even has a square with a little park on it named after him in Paris.

    I hear a musical and beautiful voice with a piano accompaniment to equal it.
