Émile Goué (1904-1946) obtained his doctorate in physics at the age of 25 and was a professor of mathematics for his entire lifetime. However, his gift for science and mathematics was not the only gift he was born with.  Throughout his life there were times when he felt the overpowering need to abandon himself to musical composition.  To quote Emile: "Music for me is a metaphysical activity and is inseparable from my life." In his short works for piano we think you will agree with us that Emile may be a master of physics and mathematics, but that he is a true master of classical music.  The name of each piece will appear as the work is being performed by Samuel Ternoy. You can purchase this CD (Works for Piano) and other CDs by Emile Goue on Amazon and Itunes. We wish to thank Albert Roussel of Centre International for making this broadcast possible.

La traviata, "The Fallen Woman" is an opera in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi set to an Italian libretto by Francesco Maria Piave. It is based on La dame aux Camélias, a play adapted from the novel by Alexandre Dumas. The opera was originally entitled Violetta, after the main character. It was first performed on 6 March 1853 at the La Fenice opera house in Venice. Piave and Verdi wanted to follow Dumas in giving the opera a contemporary setting, but the authorities at La Fenice insisted that it be set in the past, "c. 1700". It was not until the 1880s that the composer and librettist's original wishes were carried out and "realistic" productions were staged To purchase this recording for only $1.99 (digital download only) please click on the "Buy Now" link below:   Show your support for Classical Music Discoveries by become a Friend!Click HERE to become a Friend of Classical Music Discoveries  Our Sponsors: La Musica International Chamber Music Festival Southwest Symphony Orchestra Advertisers in this show are: Advertise on CMD for Only $5!

Il trovatore (The Troubadour) is an opera in four acts by Giuseppe Verdi to an Italian libretto largely written by Salvadore Cammarano, based on the play El trovador (1836) by Antonio García Gutiérrez. It was Gutiérrez's most successful play, one which Verdi scholar Julian Budden describes as "a high flown, sprawling melodrama flamboyantly defiant of the Aristotilian unities, packed with all manner of fantastic and bizarre incident." The premiere took place at the Teatro Apollo in Rome on 19 January 1853, where it "began a victorious march throughout the operatic world", a success due to Verdi's work over the previous three years. It began with his January 1850 approach to Cammarano with the idea of Il trovatore. There followed, slowly and with interruptions, the preparation of the libretto, first by Cammarano until his death in mid-1852 and then with the young librettist Leone Emanuele Bardare, which gave the composer the opportunity to propose significant revisions, which were accomplished under his direction. These revisions are seen largely in the expansion of the role of Leonora. For Verdi, the three years were filled with operatic activity because work on this opera did not proceed while the composer wrote and premiered Rigoletto in Venice in March 1851 and also while his personal affairs limited his activities. Then, in May 1851, an additional commission was offered by the Venice company after Rigoletto's success there. Then another came from Paris while he was visiting that city from late 1851 and into March 1852. Therefore, even before the libretto for Il trovatore was ever completed, before the music was written, and before the opera premiered, Verdi had a total of four different operatic projects underway and in various stages of development. Today, in its Italian version, Trovatore is performed very frequently and is a staple of the standard operatic repertoire.
