The enchanting

Famous composer of operettas - Chives, Malvina, Mozart, O my handsome stranger with Sacha Guitry -, music critic at Le Figaro, director of the Paris Opera in 1945, Hahn is a great musical and social figures of the Belle Epoque. This favorite pupil of Massenet (and friend of Goncourt, Proust, Mallarmé, Daudet) with enchanting melodic gift and harmonic refinement, is also the too little-known composer of symphonic works, ballets (for Diaghilev), concertos and works chamber music worthy of those of Fauré, Debussy, Ravel and Poulenc. Reynaldo Hahn was director of the Deauville Casino orchestra from 1925 to 1929 where a street bears his name.
