Pierné, Gabriel

1863 —
1937

GABRIEL PIERNÉ (1863-1937) studied at the Paris Conservatory from 1871 to 1882 with Marmoutel (piano), Cesar Franck (organ), and Massenet (composition). His career as a conductor began in 1903, and he enjoyed a fine reputation both as composer and conductor. Pierné was perhaps one of the most 'complete' of French composers. It was entirely characteristic of him to pass easily from the light to the thoughtful, from outward sparkle to inner penetration, and to evoke many shades of emotion and feeling.
