Abstract:
This paper presents a history and analysis of how the two masters, Richard Wagner and Cesar Franck, influenced Ernest Chausson during his lifetime and how their musical elements are represented in Chausson's Concert. The influential elements include harmonic employment, instrumentation and thematic development. Musical quotations from Wagner's operas as well as Franck's sequential writing and cyclic technique are discussed. An analysis of formal structure is provided in this context. Musical circumstances surrounding the composition of Concert are presented as well as a brief biography and description of Chausson's musical style. The impact on French Music of Cesar Franck and Richard Wagner is also discussed.
