François-Joseph Gossec

January 17, 1734 - February 16, 1829
born in Vergnies, The Netherlands, composed during the Classical period
François-Joseph Gossec (1734-1829) was a versatile and prolific composer, particularly of instrumental music, as exemplified by his symphonies and string quartets. He enlarged the expressive capabilities of the orchestra, relying on his harmonic imagination and sense of sound texture. His experiments presage the works of Haydn and Beethoven, while his large choral works foreshadow those of Berlioz. His early stage music was less skillful than his later instrumental works, much of it written for his orchestra La Concert des Amateurs, or Le Concert Spirituel. After 1789, he was a central figure in the musical activities of the Revolutionary period. ~ Patsy Morita, Rovi

Such great music; mostly lost to the world and now brought again to the sensitive, appreciating ear by Pandora. Wow!

While I'm not very familiar with this composer , I'm learning to like him since coming to Pandora. For a 71 yr old who's loved classical music all his life, I seem to be learning a lot lately. Thanks again - and keep up the good work. Ed
