Extase (Duparc, Henri) – IMSLP/Petrucci Music Library: Free Public Domain Sheet Music
Henri Fouques-Duparc was born in Paris. A mental illness, diagnosed at the time as ” neurasthenia “, caused him abruptly to cease composing at age 37, in He devoted himself to his family and his other passions, drawing and painting. Extaes increasing vision loss after the turn of the century eventually led to total blindness.
He destroyed most of his music, leaving fewer than 40 works to posterity. In a poignant letter about the destruction of his incomplete opera, dated 19 Januaryto the composer Jean Crashis close friend, Duparc wrote:. Having lived for 25 years in a splendid dream, the whole idea of [musical] representation has extse — I repeat to you — repugnant.
The other reason for this destruction, which I do not regret, was duparcc complete moral transformation that God imposed on me 20 years ago etase which, in a single minute, obliterated all of my past life.
Since then, [my opera] Roussalkanot having any connection with my new life, should no longer exist. A square in the 17th arrondissement of Paris, near the rue de Levis, is named in his honor. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
