LOUIS AUBERT  

(1877 - 1968)

Unduly neglected, Louis Aubert, a pupil of Gabriel Fauré, in the first performance of whose Requiem he took part as a boy, was a composer of considerable distinction, showing some affinity with both Debussy and Ravel.

Stage Works

Aubert’s lyrical tale La forêt bleue brings to the stage the fairy world of children’s stories. His Cinéma: Tableaux symphoniques, a ballet, shows episodes in the development of the cinema.

Orchestral Music

Dryade, Tableau symphonique, originally written in 1924 as a score for a film, is similar in its inspiration to Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloé or the work of Debussy that has its source in pagan antiquity. Aubert’s Tombeau de Chateaubriand pays tribute to his fellow-countryman, also a native of Saint-Malo. His moving Offrande of 1952 is dedicated to the memory of those who suffered in the war.
