Gossec - Piano Music

François-Joseph Gossec

Gossec (1734-1829) was a French symphonist and composer of operas. His music was popular and well-respected. Mozart considered him a great friend and particularly lauded his requiem, which was composed in 1760. This “Messe des morts” also foreshadowed certain aspects of the late 19th century. Gossec used the wind instruments as a distant orchestra, achieving spatial sound effects which Berlioz was able to build on in his Requiem some 80 years later.
