LAURENT MÉNAGER  

(1835 - 1902)

Laurent Ménager had his earlier musical training at the Athénée de Luxembourg, going on to study with Ferdinand Hiller in Cologne. On his return to Luxembourg he taught at the Luxembourg Conservatoire and at the Athénée, establishing himself nationally as a figure of importance in the music of his homeland.

Ménager contributed to various musical genres, including songs, choral works and operettas, and in 1857 founded the national choral association Sang a Klang. His Sur la montagne, Op. 35, for horn and piano, has also been arranged for horn and wind band. It evokes something of a mountain landscape, with echoes of the alpenhorn and of the changes of weather.
