NADIA BOULANGER - ORGANIST

One page autographed note by Boulanger on her “Le Director” stationary of the American School at Fontainebleau, October 25, 1969.  We include a vintage 6.5” x 8” photograph of the composer, teacher, organist and conductor at the piano dated 1962.

Boulanger writes:

How wonderfully kind you have been in coming.  How can I ever Thank you?

Faithfully yours,

NB

Boulanger (1887-1979) founded the American School at Fontainebleau in 1921.  The school ran teaching some of the great composers and musicians of the time including Aaron Copland, Robert Russell Bennett, Mark Blitzstein, Elliot Carter, Clifford Curzon, David Diamond, Jean Françaix, Roy Harris, Michel Legrand, Dinu Lipatti, Astor Piazolla, Virgil Thomson and Beveridge Webster are but a smattering of her pupils who studied at Fontainebleau.  She left the school in 1940, escaping the Nazi’s and taught in the U.S. until 1945, when she returned to France and after a stint at the Conservatoire was appointed Director of the American School in 1953.
