The Legacy of Nadia Boulanger
THE UNITED STATES ARMY FIELD BAND FROM WASHINGTON, DC
Nadia Boulanger (1887-1979) distinguished herself as a master teacher during her decades at Conservatoire Americain de Fontainebleau near Paris. The American composers featured on this recording all studied with Mademoiselle Boulanger. Each inherited a portion of her musical legacy while creating for themselves an individual stamp of compositional personality. Her work as music critic, lecturer, conductor, and concert organist left a broad wake of influence in the musical world as well. It is with great honor that the Musical Ambassadors of the Army offer this tribute to the legacy of Nadia Boulanger.
This compact disc was recorded April 2006 at Devers Hall, Fort George G. Meade, Maryland, using multi-track equipment.
