Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Antoine Fran ois Marmontel (16 July 1816, Clermont-Ferrand -16 January 1898, Paris) was a French pianist, teacher and musicographer. Marmontel entered the Paris Conservatory in 1827. His teachers were Pierre Zimmerman in pianoforte, Victor Dourlen in harmony, Jacques Fromental Hal vy in fugue and Jean-Fran ois Le Sueur in composition. He achieved first prizes in theory of music and piano. In 1837, he became an assistant in theory of music at the Conservatory. In 1848 he succeeded Zimmerman as Professor of Keyboard at the Conservatory, beating his former teacher Charles-Valentin Alkan, and as a consequence derailing the latter's career. His memoir of his sometime colleague in his book 'Les pianistes c l bres' is nonetheless one of the most valuable sources for Alkan's biography.show more
