Music

[In German]

Neben 6 Opern verfasste Gabriel Pierné eine Anzahl Ballette und Pantomimen sowie Bühnenmusiken. Er schrieb ferner die Oratorien "Die Weihnachtsnacht 1870", "Die Kinder in Bethlehem" und "Der heilige Franziskus von Assisi" sowie zahlreiche Chor- und Sologesänge mit Klavier- oder Orchesterbegleitung, eine Serenade für Streichorchester, ein Konzertstück für Violine und Orchester, ein sinfonisches Gedicht für Harfe und Orchester, eine "Fantaisie basque" für Violine und Orchester und weitere Orchesterwerke, Kammermusik und Stücke für Orgel, für Harfe und Klavier. Er war ein typischer Spätromantiker, der sich von neuen Formen fernhielt, aber im Rahmen seines Stils höchste Vollendung erreichte.

Marche des petits soldats de plomb (March of Little Lead Soldiers), Op 28 for piano (4 hands?). Wrote eight operas, instrumental and orchestral music, and songs. Also a two-piano Barcarolle.
