Emmanuel Chabrier is the great forgotten man of French music. With a passion for poetry and painting as much as for music, among his friends he could count Verlaine, Edmond Rostand, Villiers de l’Isle- Adam, Manet (whose canvasses he was one of the first to buy), Fauré, Duparc and Chausson. Beneath the laughing, chubby exterior there dwelt a roguish tenderness, an infinite passion for music.

Emmalluel Chabrier was born at Ambert, in the Auvergne, on 18 th January, 1841. The only child of Jean Chabrier and Evelina Durozay, he showed an early aptitude for music and at the age of six was taking piano lessons with the town’s teacher, Manuel Zaporta. At the age of twenty, following his father’s wishes, he went into the Ministry of the Interior. Civil servant by day, artist by night, he frequented the clubs and salons of Paris. From this period came nine unpublished melodies, pieces for piano, two operettas based on Verlaine’s librettos which were never finished and a plan for the opera Jean Hunyade. In 1880 he finally resigned his post at the Ministry of the Interior to devote himself entirely to music.

Recorded June 21 and 23-26, 1997 at the Auditorium of the Centre de Congrès in Monte-Carlo, Monaco.
