Carraud, (Michel) Gastonlocked


(b Le Mée-sur-Seine, July 20, 1864; d Paris, June 15, 1920). French music critic and composer. He attended Massenet’s classes at the Conservatoire, winning the Grand Prix de Rome in 1890 for his cantata Cléopâtre; after devoting some years to composition he turned to music criticism. For over 20 years he contributed to La liberté and Revue bleue and had considerable influence on French musical life of the early 20th century. His judgments were informed by open-mindedness, historical awareness and eclecticism; while he did not disguise his preference for classical structures, he was an early supporter of Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande.
