Description

Nadia Boulanger (1887-1979) was born in Paris. Her father was the composer Ernest Boulanger who was also a professor of voice at the Paris Conservatory. She studied at the Conservatory, distinguishing herself and winning several prizes in composition. Although she pursued a career as a composer, conductor and performer, she is remembered today as one of the most influential composition teachers of the 20th century. Her compositions were influenced by Faure, Debussy and to some extent Ravel.

Her Three Pieces, originally for organ, were transcribed by Boulanger for Cello and Piano and perhaps can be described as post impressionist. The opening piece is a delicate, mysterious Moderato. The middle work, Sas vitesse et l'aise, resembles a peaceful lament, while the finale, Vite et nerveusement, is an edgy, almost frentic affair resembling the hurly burly of modern life.
