Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gabriel Astruc (1864-1938) was a French journalist, agent, promoter, theatre manager, theatrical impresario, and playwright whose career connects many of the best-known incidents and personalities of Belle Epoque Paris. Born in Bordeaux, Astruc was the son of lie Aristide Astruc (1831-1905), a rabbi (Grand Rabbi of Belgium from 1866-1879), and began his career working for publisher Paul Ollendorff, and as a columnist from 1885 through 1895. As a regular at Montmarte's prototypically bohemian Le Chat Noir cabaret, he befriended a young Erik Satie and wrote articles and theater pieces under the pen name Surtac. In 1897 he founded a music publishing company with his father-in-law Wilhelm Enoch, by 1900 he'd introduced the luxury magazine Musica, and by 1904 had become a concert promoter.
