Charles Koechlin

Charles Koechlin (1867–1950) was a French composer, teacher, and music writer. He studied at the Paris Conservatoire with notable figures like Massenet and Fauré. Koechlin’s talent flourished, and he even orchestrated Fauré’s work ‘Pelléas et Mélisande’ and wrote the first Fauré biography.

Born in Paris on 27 November 1867, Koechlin belonged to a well-to-do family in Mulhouse, where his father worked as a textile designer. His passion for music grew as he listened to his sister play the piano and became enchanted by Bach’s Cantata for Pentecost.

Leaving the Ecole Polytechnique due to illness, Koechlin devoted himself entirely to music and entered the Paris Conservatoire. He started composing at a young age, creating his Opus 1, Cinq rondels for voice and piano, at 23. Over the years, he produced an extensive range of works, including choral music, songs, symphonic poems like ‘Les Vendanges,’ and chamber music like the Sonata for flute and piano.

Koechlin’s compositions were praised for their uniqueness, with each piece evolving organically as he crafted themes and emotions. His music showcased his exceptional skills and garnered admiration from both contemporaries and later generations.

Throughout his life, Charles Koechlin made significant contributions to music as a composer, teacher, and writer.
