Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Maurice Emmanuel (2 May 1862 - 14 December 1938) was a French composer of classical music. Brought up in Dijon, Marie Fran ois Maurice Emmanuel became a chorister at Beaune cathedral after his family moved to the city in 1869. Subsequently he went to Paris, and he entered the Paris Conservatoire, where his composition teacher was L o Delibes. At the Conservatoire he came to know Claude Debussy who was also a pupil there. In addition, he attended the Conservatoire classes of C sar Franck, about whom he wrote a short book in 1930 (C sar Franck: Etude Critique). Emmanuel pursued a notable academic career. He wrote a treatise in 1895 on the music of Ancient Greece, and was appointed professor of the history of music at the Conservatoire in 1909. His students included Olivier Messiaen and Henri Dutilleux. Emmanuel's interests included folksong, Oriental music, and exotic modes - his use of these modes in various of his works had appalled Delibes, who had vetoed his entering for the Prix de Rome. Other appointments included choirmaster at the church of Sainte-Clotilde from 1904 to 1907, during the tenure of organist Charles Tournemire.show more
