Music

Maurice Heugen, Solo flutist at the Zürich Opera Orchestra recorded La Plainte, au loin, du faune... for flute and piano. The CD "Hommage à Debussy" is available at http://www.bloomline.net/heugenboer.

Life

A friend of Debussy at the Conservatoire and a pupil of Bizet’s friend Guiraud, Paul Dukas came near to winning the Prix de Rome, but when he left the Conservatoire found an early musical career as a critic and as an orchestrator. His strong critical sense led him to destroy a number of his compositions and only to allow a relatively small number of works to be published. He remained influential and respected as a teacher.
