The life and works of Jean Cras
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this dissertation will be to draw attention to the life and works of French composer, scientist, inventor and philosopher Jean Cras (1879-1932), whose music, at the moment of this writing, is enjoying a vibrant revival in Europe. During the 1920's, after his opera Polypheme had won the Premier Prix du Concours musical de la Ville de Paris, and premiered in Paris during the 1922-23 operatic season, Jean Cras' became as much a household name as Maurice Ravel's. Part of this dissertation will attempt to explain why he was forgotten during the half-century between 1935 and 1985 [TRUNCATED]
