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

harmonies sound more modern than 1734-1829
Have to do reports on classics and this station helps a lot
This is what i listen to while crushing 2-5nl in vegas! Had some old man ask what rapper i was listing to, i said ever hear of Gossec? Lmao. This music is so theatrical it makes u feel like ur playing poker in an epic fight for your life, love it. (imagine getting in a tricky spot at the poker table @ 6:02)

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

In one Mozart session I learn about Gossec and Wranitzky with awesome music. Never heard of them before. Pandora - kudos.
I always enjoyed playing in a symphony orchestra that played François-Jos e p h Gossec's works.

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
