DESCRIPTION:

Immerse yourself in the life and music of little-known French composer Théodore Gouvy (1819-1898). This composer was greatly respected during his lifetime, but obscurity followed his death until the late 20th century when the Institut Théodore Gouvy in Hombourg-Haut, Lorraine, was founded to champion his achievement. By exploring his relationship to such well-known contemp-oraries as Berlioz, Liszt, and Brahms, we’ll begin to discover and appreciate his place in the history of music.
