Jean Cras (1879-1932) was a remarkable man by anyone's measure. Twice a decorated hero of the Great War, this Rear-Admiral of the French navy, scientist, inventor and moral philosopher, was also a highly esteemed composer during his lifetime, enjoying the same stature and celebrity as FaurDebussy and Ravel. Since his death, however, both Cras and his music have been almost completely overlooked. In this, the first critical biography of Cras, Paul-Andre Bempechat situates Henri Duparc's protegs a missing link between the French post-Romantic generation of composers and the Impressionists. The book explores, both historically and analytically, the methodology by which Cras evolved his eclectic brand of Impressionism, striking the delicate balance between Celtic folk idioms and exoticisms inspired by his travels. Cras' creative legacy extends beyond the world of music to the world of science. His five patented inventions include the navigational gyrocompass, which bears his name, still in use to this day by the French navy, coast guard and boating afficionados. Bempechat draws special attention to the humanist Jean Cras and his distinguished military career - he is credited with saving the Serbian army from extinction - drawing on primary source material such as family correspondence and wartime diaries to reaffirm this composer as a true Renaissance man of the twentieth century.

This collection of Jean Cras' early songs extends from his childhood through his late adolescence and into his early twenties, and with this publication, performers and scholars are now able to trace his evolution as one of France's greatest composers of mélodie of the post-Romantic and Impressionist eras. This volume of thirty-eight songs both complements and completes the published repertoire of Cras' prodigious song cycles Elégies, L'Offrande lyrique, Fontaines and Cinq Robaïyats de Omar Khayyam, and his individual songs, as analyzed in depth in my biography, Jean Cras, Polymath of Music and Letters (Routledge, 2009). Analyses of these earlier songs will be found in the second edition, released in 2019 (Peter Lang). The evolution of Jean Cras's music is, of course, reflected systemically as he continually harnessed, honed and refined the procedure. This systematic process of auto-didactic maturation underpins the reason for this volume of songs: from the earliest, naïve settings to his highly complex evocations - beginning with Musset, Hugo and Sully-Prudhomme to Baudelaire, Maeterlinck and Rodenbach, by way of now-obscure masters such as Alfred Droin, Jean Rameau and Jean Aicard - we witness a remarkable evolution of both prosodic and harmonic ingenuity, demanding of the singer acute attention

This collection of essays forms the second "Festschrift" to honour the dean of Gustav Mahler research, Henry-Louis de La Grange, on the occasion of his ninetieth birthday. It includes vibrant, new historical, theoretical, and aesthetic research on the complex mind which produced among the best-loved orchestral works and songs ofWestern classical music. Henry-Louis de La Grange's passion and tireless devotion to Gustav Mahler began when he first heard his Ninth Symphony conducted by Bruno Walter at Carnegie Hall in New York. He went on to plumb the depths of this composer's mind and soul and to explore every facet of his existence. Among the many honours he has gleaned since the publication of the first "Festschrift, Neue Mahleriana" (Lang, 1997), Henry-Louis de La Grange has been named Professor by the Government of Austria (1998) and "Officier de l'Ordre de la Legion d'honneur" (2006). He has also been awarded Bard College's Charles Flint Kellogg Award in Arts and Letters, the "Osterreichisches Ehrenkreuz fur Wissenschaft und Kunst, 1. Klasse" (2010), the Gold Medal of the "Internationale Gustav Mahler Gesellschaft" (2010), and an honourary doctorate from The Juilliard School (2010). As another everlasting tribute, the American film director Jason Starr released his documentary
