Achille Edmond Audran (12 April 1840 – 17 August 1901) was a #French #composer best known for several internationally successful #operettas, including 'Les noces d'Olivette' (1879), 'La mascotte' (1880), 'Gillette de Narbonne' (1882), 'La cigale et la fourmi' (1886), 'Miss Helyett' (1890), and 'La poupée' (1896). After #Audran's initial success in Paris, his works also became a regular feature in the West End of London, in adaptations that Audran supervised. Most of his works are now neglected, but 'La mascotte' has been revived occasionally and has been recorded for the gramophone. #music #musicfact #musicfacts #classicalmusic #edmondaudran #weloveclassicalmusic

Jean-Henri-Alphonse Barraqué (January 17, 1928 – August 17, 1973) was a #French #composer and writer on music who developed an individual form of  #serialism which is displayed in a small output. #JeanBarraqué stated that he wrote about 30 works before those that he eventually acknowledged; as far as is known they were destroyed by him. They included a 'Nocturneand Mouvement lent' for piano, at least three piano sonatas, a sonata for unaccompanied violin, and a Symphony in C sharp minor. The presumably fourth, but un-numbered Piano Sonata, for which he gave the date 1952, was his earliest acknowledged work. #Barraqué then produced his only electronic piece, the  #musiqueconcrète 'Etude' (1954), made at #PierreSchaeffer's studio. Subsequently, he planned a large-scale cycle of pieces, 'La Mort de Virgile', based on #HermannBroch's novel 'The Death of Virgil'. This cycle, along with other pieces deriving from it or acting as commentaries upon it, he envisaged as his principal lifelong creative project. Following the scheme of the novel, it was to be divided into four sub-cycles: 'Water (The Arrival)', 'Fire (The Descent)', 'Earth (The Expectancy)' and 'Air (The Return)'. Most of Barraqué's creative efforts went into the works which were to take their place in 'Fire (The Descent)', which was to have consisted of thirteen works. Before his death he completed two of the projected parts: 'Chant aprés chant' (1966), and 'Le temps restitué' (1957/68). Fragments of some of the other parts exist. #music #musicfacts #musicfact #classicalmusic #weloveclassicalmusic
Peter Benoit (17 August 1834 – 8 March 1901), was a  #Flemish  #composer of #Belgian nationality. Benoit's most important compositions include the Flemish oratorios 'De Schelde' (The river Scheldt) and 'Lucifer' (which met complete failure when it was staged in London in 1888), the operas 'Het Dorp in 't Gebergte' (The village in the mountains) and 'Isa, and the Drama Christi', a huge body of songs, choruses, small cantatas and motets. Benoit also wrote a great number of essays on musical matters. #PeterBenoit also composed a Flute Concerto (Symphonic Tale), Op. 43a, and a Piano Concerto (Symphonic Tale), Op. 43b. #music #musicfacts #musicfact #classicalmusic #weloveclassicalmusic
Leopold Nowak (17 August 1904 – May 27, 1991) was a #musicologist chiefly known for editing the works by Anton #Bruckner for the International Bruckner Society. He reconstructed the original form of some of those works, most of which had been revised and edited many times. He succeeded  #RobertHaas as music director of the music collection of the  #Austrian National Library in 1946, and is credited with helping preserve documents about Bruckner. Nowak's approach to editing Bruckner's music was much more scientific than Haas's. #Nowak also wrote essays examining theoretical aspects of the music of Bruckner and others, such as an essay on the metrical and rhythmical aspects of the symphonies of Beethoven and Bruckner. Nowak worked on a new edition of Wolfgang Amadeus #Mozart's famously uncompleted Requiem and was able through detailed scrutiny to distinguish Mozart's own handwriting from that of Süßmayr and Eybler to an extent no one had been able to do before. In recognition, Nowak was awarded the Goldene Mozart Medaille in 1985. Nowak also studied the music of #HeinrichIsaac, Joseph #Haydn, Austrian church and folk music, and various Austrian composers from the Middle Ages (1480s onwards). #music #musicfact #musicfacts #classicalmusic #weloveclassicalmusic #leonowak #leopoldnowak
