 Update me on new releases by Fevrier

Jacques Fevrier (1900 - 1979)

Février’s father, Henri (1875–1957), was a composer whose operas are today forgotten. Jacques studied with Edouard Risler and Marguerite Long at the Paris Conservatoire, winning a premier prix in Long’s class in 1921. He specialised in French music and became a champion of the music of 'Les Six'. From childhood he was acquainted with Ravel, who had known his father in Fauré’s composition class at the Paris Conservatoire. Young Jacques would visit Ravel at Sainte-Croix in Neuilly where the composer was living with his mother. During his years at the Conservatoire, Février regularly visited Ravel and studied and played many of his works with him. Ravel chose Février to play his Concerto for the Left Hand, originally written for Paul Wittgenstein, and after three years of exclusive rights had elapsed Février played it all over the world. He said, ‘I had studied it with Ravel. Although already very ill, he knew perfectly well what he wanted and what he forbade. When Marguerite Long was learning the Concerto in G major I accompanied her on the second piano. Ravel was behind me, and I still remember exactly what he asked of her.’ In 1932 Février gave the première of Poulenc’s Concerto for Two Pianos with the composer at the second piano and often gave concerts with Poulenc or Auric. In 1952 Février became professor of chamber music at the Paris Conservatoire.
