Vincent d'Indy
Birth: Mar. 27, 1851
Death: Dec. 2, 1931

Composer and Teacher. His music is noted for its serene, objective beauty and its feeling for nature. Among his important works are the "Symphony on a French Mountain Air" (1887), the "Istar Variations" (1897), the opera "Fervaal" (1897), the Symphony No. 2 (1904), and the tone poem "Summer Day on the Mountain" (1906). D'Indy was born in Paris and studied with composer Cesar Franck. Respected in its time, his music has since been eclipsed by his reputation as an educator and promoter. As Director of the Societie Nationale from 1890, he brought much new music to the French public. In 1893 the government commissioned him to organize a new educational program for the Paris Conservatory. When that institution refused to implement his reforms d'Indy founded the Schola Cantorum in 1894; he taught there the rest of his life and became its Director in 1910. The Conservatory eventually gave in to his ideas and he also began teaching there in 1912. His pupils from both schools included Erik Satie, Albert Roussel, Arthur Honegger, and Georges Auric. Paul Dukas, composer of "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," called d'Indy "One of the greatest French musicians." (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
