January 20 Birthdays

On January 20 we observe the birthdays of French composer Ernest Chausson (1855-1899), French conductor Antonio de Almeida (1928-1997) and American composer Walter Piston (1894-1976). Amé:dée-Ernest Chausson studied with Jules Massenet and César Franck at the Paris Conservatoire. Antonio de Almeida initially set out to study nuclear chemistry at M.I.T. but his godfather Artur Rubenstein persuaded him to take up music. A student of Nadia Boulanger and Paul Dukas, Walter Piston taught at Harvard University from 1944-1960.
