Example text

As we shall later see when we examine Gabriel Faure's reforms, although a class on music history was offered, it was not required and was ill attended; the repertoire of the students reflected this, being largely centered on standard virtuoso compositions, as well as on more recent well-known operatic works. A "canon," as such, thus did not exist as a component of the institution's instruction, although the Societe des Concerts du Conservatoire, which performed in the Conservatoire's hall, had introduced the German canonic repertoire in France.

As William Weber has shown, these concerts were the province of an exclusive, elite public, for whom they filled a gap in the classical French tradition that had been associated with the Bourbon monarchy. Significantly, these concerts soon established ties to the state bureaucracy, which not only legitimated them symbolically but helped in turn to legitimate the Orleanist monarchy on an elite level imbuing it with a patina of high culture. Although the Third Republic did continue to provide subventions for the concerts, it did not recognize the symbolic value of promoting the French classical heritage (now safely removed in time from monarchical associations), together with the German canon, through the Conservatoire itself.

60 Here, too, the works studied were substantially different from those at the Paris Conservatoire, which was centered, 32 THE BATTLE IS ESTABLISHED as we have seen, on the nineteenth-century repertoire. D'Indy's emphasis was on the French pre-revolutionary and classic composers, beginning with Lully, whom he considered "the creator of French dramatic music"; it also included Gluck and Rameau, the latter having already caught the attention of the Societe Nationale de Musique Francaise, which had hoped to renew interest in his work.
