More > (French: [ʒyl emil fʁedeʁik masnɛ]; 12 May 1842 – 13 August 1912) was a French composer of the Romantic era best known for his operas, of which he wrote more than thirty. The two most frequently staged are Manon (1884) and Werther (1892). He also composed oratorios, ballets, orchestral works, incidental music, piano pieces, songs and other music.While still a schoolboy, Massenet was admitted to France's principal music college, the Paris Conservatoire. There he studied under Ambroise Thomas, whom he greatly admired. After winning the country's top musical prize, the Prix de Rome, in 1863, he composed prolifically in many genres, but quickly became best known for his operas.

Il est arrivé à Luigi Boccherini ce qui arriva à J.S. Bach à une certaine époque : l’oubli le plus injuste pendant deux cents ans dans l’Histoire de la... More > Musique. En toile de fond de cette biographie, se trouvent les révélations qui nous apprennent le pourquoi de certaines prises de position volontaristes du compositeur à l’égard de l’opéra ou de certains instruments, comme les claviers. D’une part, afin de définir le plus clairement possible le caractère du compositeur, on a utilisé sa biographie en l’insérant dans le contexte historique de son temps et d’autre part, j’ai consolidé le personnage avec l’indispensable parcours romanesque qui entoure sa vie.< Less
