Cecile Chaminade (1857~1944) was a French composer and pianist. They say that she was a first female composer who succeeded in publishing and performance, and was independent, financially. Although she succeeded in her lifetime, after her death, most of her works were forgotten. Since 1990s, one of her works, “Concertino pour Flute, Op.107” has been performed, again, and now, her other works are also performed, recently.
This work, “SOLITUDE” is one movement from "Poemes provencales" for Piano.
Today, many of her works are still forgotten, although she composed a lot of works. But, it’ll be worth thinking that thanks to those forgotten works and forgotten composers, we can enjoy the present music.
