Abstract:
This study considers the work of Charles-Marie Widor within the cultural and socio-political context of fin-de-siecle France. Although Widor is now recognised predominantly as an organist, contemporary writings portray him as an accomplished composer of various genres and a central figure within French establishments. Aspects of his musicality such as performance and institutional activities often elucidate more about his outlook than his compositions, and are assessed accordingly. Further to engaging in broad musical pursuits, he embraced culture more generally, retaining an interest in the arts, literature, and science. An examination of his work in relation to both physical and ideological representations of this milieu can therefore reveal the cultural congruence of his inspirations and ideas.
