NADIA BOULANGER (1887 - 1979)
Nadia Boulanger is better known as a teacher and conductor than
as a composer. In the first capacity she was responsible for the
musical training of a generation of distinguished composers from
Europe and America. Her work as an interpreter influenced many,
not least by the part she played in the revival of interest in
Nadia Boulanger's few compositions include Les heures claires, settings of poems by Verhaeren completed in 1912, after which she wrote little, although in 1908 she had won the second Prix de Rome.
