Classical Music Playlist, October 10, 2022

Born in Caracas, Venezuela and moved with his family to Paris at the age of three, Reynaldo Hahn was a child prodigy who made his debut at the age of six singing tunes with his own piano accompaniment. in the salon of Princess Mathilde. At eight he began writing his own songs (for which he is perhaps now best known) and at eleven he enrolled at the Paris Conservatory where his teachers and mentors included Jules Massenet, Charles Gounod , Camille Saint-Saëns and others. In 1894, as a homosexual, he met and was for a time the partner of Marcel Proust who deepened Hahn’s appreciation for poetry (which helped him write his songs), and Proust once wrote that “Everything I’ve ever done has always been thanks to Reynaldo. Hahn was well connected with famous figures of the Belle Époque and became equally famous in Parisian society, particularly between the two world wars, as a prolific composer of over 380 works in many genres, conductor (particularly of Mozart), music critic, author, biographer, theater director, voice teacher and singer. Yet in his time, Hahn was also the victim of a thinly veiled homophobia, as in a review that said his 1898 opera dream island suffered from “effeminate softness” apart from his few “manly” moments. And during World War II was the subject of anti-Semitism when a Paris presentation of his operetta Chive was canceled due to his Jewish ancestry and the rest of his music was banned. Although Reynaldo Hahn was one of the most diverse, renowned, prolific and award-winning men of his time, after his death in 1947 his music fell into oblivion (perhaps in part his fault he was so broadly interested outside of music) and it’s only now a revival. In this spirit, we offer Hahn’s 1921 Piano Quintet – which has been called equivalent to similar works by Mozart, Schumann, Brahms, Dvořák and Fauré – as today’s midday masterpiece. at 2 p.m.
