Dédé: Orchestral Works

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Scott Paulin
Undervalued by historians and more likely to be forgotten when popular tastes change, much of the light music of earlier times has utterly faded away. All the more welcome, then, is Naxos' American Classics series, which has unearthed some thoroughly enjoyable rarities by the New Orleans-born Creole composer Edmond Dédé. Like his most famous counterpart, Louis Moreau Gottschalk, Dédé spent much of his career in France, and with connections both to French masters such as Gounod and Halévy and to the forerunners of ragtime, he is a real missing link to 20th-century popular music.

Barnes & Noble - Scott Paulin
Undervalued by historians and more likely to be forgotten when popular tastes change, much of the light music of earlier times has utterly faded away. All the more welcome, then, is Naxos' American Classics series, which has unearthed some thoroughly enjoyable rarities by the New Orleans-born Creole composer Edmond Dédé. Like his most famous counterpart, Louis Moreau Gottschalk, Dédé spent much of his career in France, and with connections both to French masters such as Gounod and Halévy and to the forerunners of ragtime, he is a real missing link to 20th-century popular music. His witty and sentimental songs, salon pieces for piano, and sparkling orchestral bonbons will charm anyone with a taste for the lighter side of classical music. Various performers from the Hot Springs Music Festival are heard here, with the Festival Orchestra augmented by an ensemble of buzzing kazoos for the "Méphisto masqué." Other highlights include the touching song "Mon pauvre coeur," sung by Emily Eagen, and the miniature romantic screwball comedy of "Françoise et Tortillard." Dédé's music is a delight that has gone too long unheard. Also check out Naxos' survey of fellow Creole composers Charles Lucièn Lambert Sr. and Lucièn-Léon Guillaume Lambert Jr.
