Cahen, Albert [Cahen d'Anvers]. (b Paris, 8 Jan 1846; d Cap d'Ail, nr Monte Carlo, 23 Feb 1903). French composer. Of aristocratic blood, he studied the piano with Mme Szarvady and in the mid-1860s became one of the first pupils of Franck, for composition and harmony. Songs on poems by Musset date from this period though his first important work, the drame biblique Jean le précurseur did not appear until 1874 at the Concert National. After the poor reception of his poème mythologique Endymion (1883) he turned his attention to the stage, making his début at the Opéra-Comique with Le bois. His féerie, La belle au bois dormant, was given at the Grand Théâtre, Geneva, in 1886 and the ballet Fleur des neiges at the same theatre two years later. His best-known work, the opera Le vénitien, was first performed at Rouen in 1890 (where it was seen by Franck just before his death), and was produced in Paris later that year. After Franck died Cahen's relationship with Franck's circle - and with d'Indy in particular - became cooler and he grew disillusioned when his last stage work, La femme de Claude, achieved little success. Offered here is a Good unmarked copy of the Vocal Score of Endymion, quarter bound with marbled boards and endpapers. Gilt titles on spine. Foxing on endpapers, front hinge cracked though holding, pages lightly browning towards edges. Edges of boards worn at extremites. Inscribed by the composer on the title page to Monsieur Edmond Hippeau, March 1883. Overall a good copy of a scarce item from a forgotten French composer.
