Daniel Éricourt (1903 - 1998)

In the mid-1920s, almost all French composers wanted to try their hand at fashionable dances, but especially the very young who were looking for immediate success. Among them was the pianist Daniel Éricourt, an enfant prodige who was a pupil of Nadia Boulanger and met Debussy, of whom he became one of the best interpreters. Before moving to the United States in 1926, where he later taught and where he died, Éricourt also tried his hand at composition, with some fashionable works such as Pièce en forme de rag (1924), as well as transcriptions and arrangements of works by Debussy, Ravel and others.
