Albert Roussel

Overview

Although recognized as one of the greatest French composers of the twentieth century, Albert Roussel (1869-1937) has been frequently overlooked in recent years. However, the publication of this bibliography coincides with a renewed interest, especially in Roussel's native land, in recording his compositions.

Overview

Although recognized as one of the greatest French composers of the twentieth century, Albert Roussel (1869-1937) has been frequently overlooked in recent years. However, the publication of this bibliography coincides with a renewed interest, especially in Roussel's native land, in recording his compositions. While the majority of English-language works on Roussel have concentrated on the details of his life or attempted to define and analyze his compositional style, this first annotated bibliography and discography focuses on his opus and provides copious information about specific works, performances, recordings, and reviews.

Born in Tourcoing, France, Roussel received recognition for his compositions as early as 1897. His productivity soared during the 1920s, when his work was influenced by Impressionism, and his neo-classical compositions of the 1930s achieved national recognition. The work commences with a biography, and then presents a listing voice, and includes a directory of publishers. A discography, broken into similar divisions, follows. The annotated bibliography covers books and articles about Roussel, program notes, and writings by the composer. Two appendices provide an index to first lines and a chronological list of compositions. An index of personal and corporate names completes the reference. This bibliography will be an important addition to university libraries and music departments.
