Amédée-Ernest Chausson (1855 – 1899)
Ernest Chausson was a French composer who lived from 1855 to 1899. He was a member of the Impressionist movement, which sought to express emotions and impressions through music. Chausson is most well-known for his works for orchestra and voice, including his opera "Le Roi Arthus" and his symphonic poem "Poème de l'amour et de la mer."
Chausson was heavily influenced by the works of Wagner and Debussy, and his compositions often featured lush, romantic melodies and rich harmonies. He was also a talented violinist and played a key role in the development of French chamber music.
Despite his short career, Chausson left a lasting impact on the world of classical music. His works continue to be performed and celebrated today, and he is considered one of the greatest French composers of the late 19th century.
