REYNALDO HAHN

Musician

Georges Goursat (Sem)
Paul Nadar

The Enchanter

Celebrated composer of operettas - Ciboulette, Malvina, Mozart, Ô mon bel inconnu with Sacha Guitry -, music critic for the Figaro, director of the Paris Opera in 1945, Hahn is one of the great musical and social figures of the Belle Epoque. This favorite pupil of Massenet (and friend of the Goncourts, Proust, Mallarmé, Daudet), with his enchanting melodic gift and harmonic refinement, is also the too little-known composer of symphonic works, ballets (for Diaghilev), concertos and chamber music worthy of Fauré, Debussy, Ravel and Poulenc. Reynaldo Hahn was director of the Casino de Deauville orchestra from 1925 to 1929 where a street bears his name.
