Abstract (Summary)

This project report explores Cécile Chaminade’s Six Études de Concert, Op. 35. Chaminade was a popular composer during her lifetime. Many musicians respected and admired her works despite that she was a female composer born in the mid-nineteenth century. Her piano works were widely published in America and Europe. Though not as popular today, her admirable works can be effective, deserving occasional performances on the concert stage.

The introduction of this report discusses Chaminade’s success as a woman composer, the decline of her fame after she die, and the rising interest in her works by scholars and musicians of the present day. Subsequent chapters examine Chamiande’s musical career, compositional style, and influences by other Romantic composers. The final chapter is an analysis of Six Études de Concert, Op. 35, focusing on the title and the character of each piece, with a few practical suggestions for the performer.
