Chaminade Return to List of Composers
Cecile Chaminade was born in France in 1857. This composer belonged to the Romantic period, and died in 1944. Cécile Chaminade

Cécile Chaminade (b. Paris 1857; d Monte Carlo, 1944) was a pianist and composer known for her graceful "salon" piano music. She was a student of French violinist and composer Benjamin Godard and began composing at the age of eight. She was one of the first women to forge a composing career. She studied at the Paris Conservatory with Félix Le Coupey. From 1875, she began to give regular piano recitals, including her own compositions. Her compositions include comic opera, ballet, orchestral suites, and a concert piece for piano and orchestra.

Chaminade was known as a stylish pianist who also wrote more than two hundred salon style pieces. Her serious compositions included a Choral Symphony, the Concertstück, Opus 40, and two Piano Trios. Chaminade's salon compositions were popular enough to be played for three generations, although the performance of her music declined along with home music making.
