Ernest Chausson by P. Frois, ca. 1885, National Library of France [via WikiPedia; PD]

The music of German composers largely filled purely symphonic or chamber music programs in early 19th century France, where French composers largely wrote operas and ballets. But with the creation of the National Music Society in 1871 to promote French music, other symphonies began to emerge. In 1885, Édouard Lalo began his Symphony in G minor; Camille Saint-Saëns produced his Third Symphony (“Organ”) in 1886, and Ernest Chausson premiered his only symphony in 1891. Moving back and forth between slow and dark and lively and seeking optimism, the three-movement Symphony de Chausson in B flat is today’s noon masterpiece at 2:00 p.m.
