The Cunning Man - Rousseau (pre-revolution composer & philiosopher - ARN 38 157)

£5.99

Product description

Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-78) developed a liking for music at a very early age ; his father would play him minuets on, either his violin, or his ‘pocket-violin’, a miniature version of the instrument, that teachers would carry around town. After learning the basics of music, at the orchestra of Annecy Cathedral, Rousseau then wrote his famous ‘Dictionary of Music’ (eventually published in 1767).

He started to compose operas, at the age of 20, writing both lyrics and music. His first to be published, was ‘The Gallant Muses’, an opera-ballet composed between 1743-45. During this period, Rousseau also became fascinated by Italian music, whilst working in Venice , as secretary to the French embassy. Public recognition, came with this album’s content, the opera ‘The Cunning Man’ (as the English version, by Charles Burney, is titled, rather than the strict translation 'The Village Soothsayer'), in 1751.
