and 1752 At the age of 16 Anna was appointed as court musician to Friedrich vice count of Brandenburg Bayreuth and his wife Wilhelmine of Bayreuth a composer herself and a sister of Friedrich the Great Anna was virtuosa di musica da camera in 1756 this is written on the frontpieces of the VI Sonate da Camera per il flauto Traversiere Violoncello o Cembalo opera prima Anna Bon s first mentioned publication was dedicated to the vice count who was an experienced flutist These sonatas were presumably submitted as part of an application for the position of a harpsichordist at the court of the margaravine Wilhelmine of Bayreuth in whose service she was later employed Further works appeared in print Sei Sonate per il Cembalo opus 2 which were dedicated to Ernestina Augusta Sophia Princess of Weimar in 1757 and in 1759 Sei Divertimenti a due Flauti e Basso opus 3 dedicated to the elector of Mannheim Karl Theodor This dedication indicates that she was looking for a new sphere of activity Dependend on the beginning of the Seven Years War in 1756 and the death of Wilhelmine of Bayreuth in 1758 there most probably was a decrease of concerts at the court of Bayreuth In 1762 the Bon family found employment at the court of Prince Esterházy where Josef Haydn was Kapellmeister Anna Bon and her mother Rosa were engaged as singers her father Girolamo as a set designer It is known for a fact that Anna Bon lived there until 1765 By 1767 Anna Bon now married to a tenor chamber singer by the name of Mongeri was presumably living at the court of Hildburghausen in Thuringia This was the residence of Princess Ernestine Auguste of Sachsen Hildburghausen who already knew Anna Bon from her time in Bayreuth There is no record of the whereabouts of Anna Bon after 1767 Werke Annäherung VII

any musical antecedents her passion for music was quite her own After teaching herself to play the piano Mélanie obtained her parents permis sion to attend music lessons Thanks to her talent and willpower she met the right people and César Franck himself made it possible for her to attend the Conservatory in Paris in 1876 She achieved brilliant results in courses in harmony piano accompaniment and composition under the masters Guiraud and Bazille attending classes along with Pierné and Debussy After studying for three years and winning a first prize for Harmony and a second prize for Accompaniment her parents made her leave the Conservatory in order to put an end to her romance with the celebrated Amédée Hettich a brilliant young student of song Mélanie then entered into a marriage of convenience becoming the wife of rich Parisian industrialist Albert Domange She became responsible for a large family and was burdened with many household chores In this situation always far removed from music she soon rediscovered her passion for composition a passion enhanced by her hypersensitivity inspired by her forbidden love and elevated by a deeply Christian attitude to morals and mysticism Mel Bonis has left us an important body of works about 300 pieces covering virtually every genre choral works organ pieces melodies chamber music including a number of masterpieces such as the quartets and the sonnets orchestra and piano pieces The post Romantic style of her works is fully in keeping with her era She displays great variety ranging from the dramatic to the humorous is often vigorous and sensual borrows from the Orient always writes well and with great sensitivity These are intimate pieces easily identi fied by their harmonic and rhythmic originality The music of Mel Bonis is both original yet well integrated into its time Deeply moving it springs from an undying source of inspiration is well structured and confidently written The chamber music represents the flower of her works It is made up of some twenty works for a variety of instruments almost always associated with the piano A dozen of these are major works sonatas trios quartets septets which will

    work as a composer including not only the comic opera La Sévillane and the ballet Callirhoë but also one concertante piece for piano and orchestra two piano trios one concertino for flute and orchestra and a mass is the quality of her melodic inventiveness Cécile Chaminade was as even inconspicuous little pieces in her Album des Enfants op l26 or chanson like songs demonstrate a bor n melodist full of lyrical refinement with a highly developed sense of measure and clarity Like Mélanie Bonis and Lili Boulanger the winner of the Rome Prize who died at an early age she continued the old tradition of typically French transparency and singability as a whole Although she was at times a figure of fun or even notoriety as a salon composer it is no longer possible to imagine Pari sian musical life at the turn of the century without Cécile Chaminade In particular it is her music for solo piano with its expression of noblesse and elegance which has come to epitomise the music of the Belle Epoque and to which she owed her social advancement and long lasting popularity as a performer mainly of her own works Cécile Louise Stéphanie Chaminade was born on 8 August 1857 at the foot of the hill of Montmartre in Paris She was the third of four children descended on her father s side from a line of offi cers and seamen Her artistically gifted mother was considered a good pianist and a highly thought of singer It was she who taught the rudiments of music to her daughter who made her first attempts at composition before she was even ten When her father who at that time was the director of an insurance company bought a property in Le Vésinet in 1863 the young Cécile made the acquaintance there of Georges Bizet Convinced of the girl s above average musi cal abilities he lovingly called her mon petit Mozart Cécile was taught privately by teachers from the Paris Conservatory which she was not permitted to attend She received piano lessons from Félix Le Couppey and was given violin lessons by Joseph Marsick She continued her piano training with Antoine Marmontel and studied composition under Benjamin Godard who familiarized her with the classicist currents in French music of the late romantic period Félix Chaminade s breakthrough as a composer came in 1888 with her greatest works On 16 March her ballet Callirhoë had such a successful opening night at the Grand Théatre de Marseille that there were more than 200 subsequent performances in the same theatre and individual pieces taken from the colourful score such as the Pas des Amphores and the Pas des Echarpes were soon being printed by American publishers On 18 April the concertante piece op 40 for piano and or chestra with its brilliantly evocative Spanish elements and her symphonie dramatique Les Amazones for choirs and large orchestra had an eventful premià re in Antwerp Now celebrated as a composer too Cécile Chaminade shared with Emmanuel Chabrier and Moritz Moszkowski the Paris publisher Enoch who printed most of her works over a period of several decades and encouraged her to write four handed arrangements of numerous solo pieces to further the wider distribution of her works Having already given concerts in Western Switzerland and in Holland from 1892 onwards Chaminade took particular pleasure in performing in England where on repeated occasions she was a guest of Queen Victoria at Windsor Castle for subsequent recreation Meanwhile in the USA actual Chaminade Clubs had been established and were insisting upon making the personal acquaintance of the composer of such popular piano pieces as Sérénade op 29 or the lst Arabesque op 6l In the 1907 08 concert season Chaminade gave guest recitals of her own compositions in American cities from Boston to St Louis and in Canada making 25 appearances and filling concert halls wherever she went Her husband Louis Matthieu Carbonel a music publisher from Marseille had died in 1907 She had married him in Le Vésinet in 1901 but had maintained a certain distance by keeping her residence near Paris She explained her platonic marriage with the words Quelle désillusion que les mariages d artistes l un mange toujours l autre What a disappointment these artists marriages are one partner always devours the other After the loss of her mother in 1911 her first creative crisis began to emerge continuing after the outbreak of the First World War Cécile Chaminade stopped composing temporarily and then after she had withdrawn from social and cultural life in 1922 her creative outpouring came to an end By the time of her death on 13 April 1944 in Monte Carlo where she had retired to in 1936 she was known to the international music world only for her concertino for flute op l07 She had written this piece in 1902 at the height of her fame as a compulsory exercise for the Paris Conservatory which had once been closed to her Cécile Chaminade not only made history in 1913 by becoming the first woman composer to be admitted to the French Legion of Honour but was also the first European composer to have the honour of being published in America As early as 1893 the famous New York publisher G Schirmer issued two anthologies of her songs followed by two piano albums six years later The exotic tone colour of dance inspired bravura pieces such as â Lolitaâ and Lolita and La Morena reminiscent of their fellow countryman Louis Moreau Gottschalk particularly appealed to the Americans The selection of works printed here endeavours to present a wide variety in terms of form and content taking into account as it does not only the sonata but also such different expressions of Cécile Chaminade s Parisian spirit as the brilliant concert étude with its Romantic character and the salonesque playful waltz the Song without Words of the type introduced by Mendelssohn Bartholdy and the early impressionist atmospheric
