Societe des Concerts au Conservatoire, 1828-1967
D. Kern Holoman (au)
Established in 1828 with roots stretching back to the 1790s, the Societe des Concerts du Conservatoire reflected the development of French culture, and of Western music in the 19th and 20th cent. Admired by Wagner, Liszt, and Mendelssohn, the Societe canonized the Beethoven symphonies and popularized Franck and Saint-Saens. When the Armistice came, in 1918, the orchestra was in the midst of a tour of the U.S. Having survived two revolutions and three wars, the Societe was dissolved in 1967, to be reincorporated as the Orchestre de Paris. This book chronicles the life of the Societe, from its day-to-day operations to its role in creating the canon of orchestral concert music in our culture. Illustrations.
