Jacques François Antoine IBERT 1890-1962
Fanfare moderne für Trompete
Edited and arranged by Wolfgang G. Haas
In 2012 there will be the commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of Jacques Ibert’s death. This will provide many opportunities to rediscover, or become acquainted with, one of the most famous 20th century French composers.
Like Debussy and Ravel, Jacques Ibert has the essential qualities of the French musician: clarity, balance, verve and elegance. He defined himself by these words, “I hate the word ‘system’ and I don’t care about preconceived rules. All systems are good as long as you can put them in music.”
In 1955, Ibert was appointed General Administrator of the Réunion des Théâtres Lyriques nationaux (the combined management of Paris Opera and Opera Comique).
In 1956, he was elected to the Académie des Beaux Arts of the Institut de France. He died in February 5th 1962
