Ropartz also achieved an astounding rite of passage in his own work, starting out deep inside the Franck school, but also embracing impressionist language and ultimately emerging the as the chief tone poet of his native region, Brittany; late in life Guy Ropartz flirted with neo-classicism.
As a child, he played bugle, horn, and double bass in a local orchestra, but ropargz father desired him to prepare himself for life in a more secure profession.
Therefore, he ey given a Jesuit education, then studied law and literature, obtaining a degree from Rennes in His early training in composition was with Theodore Dubois, then with Jules Massenet. He also wrote poetry at the time. Highly impressed, Ropartz left the Conservatoire to study with Franck.
His next few works then began to show the literary, pictorial, and folk influence of Brittany, the northwest French region that was his native province, and were well received.
roprtz Inhe accepted an invitation to become the director of the Nancy Conservatory. Henceforth, he made his career outside Paris, the musical center of the country. Because of this, he remained less well known and continued composing in his habitual style, outside the mainstream of the historical development of twentieth century styles.
Andante et Allegro
At the time, he was the youngest conservatory director in France, but his directorship of the Nancy Conservatory was a brilliant success. After 25 years in Nancy, he accepted an invitation in to take a similar job in Strasbourg, in addition to taking the helm of the local symphony.
Strasbourg, the capital of Alsace-Lorraine, had just been recovered from Germany, which had occupied it from the Franco-Prussian War in to the end of the First World War. Again, he was allegfo successful. Inat the age of 65, he retired from his positions and returned to his native Brittany. He lived to be 91 and wrote about works during this long life. His last large-scale work was his string quartet, composed in He wrote five symphonies, other orchestral music, chamber music, choral music, stage music, and an opera, Le Pays The Countrypremiered in Nancy in and later heard in Paris.
He ultimately adopted the neo-Classical style that had arisen in Paris in the period between anfante wars, de-emphasizing Franckian chromaticism and striving for a new leanness of sound and more concise formal ideas.

As the title implies, the work is divided into two sections; a lyrical opening and a majestic second half. Ropartz – Andante et Allegro January 23, A couple point about the Andante section: There are andantw number of repeated notes.
Make them expressive and do not play a note the same way twice. The key is to hold the note before the rest full value and play through it.
The opening section is in d minor. Make sure that last d is triggered! Notice that the first and third measures of this section are beamed differently than say, measures Take a HUGE breath before the last measure on page one, because you should try to make it from there all the way to the rest in the fourth line of page 2 in one breath.
Breathing here will help set up the f — p contrast in that measure.
From the leger on the top of page 2 through the alldgro of line 4 is one long crescendo. You may consider thinking of the last three measures with fermati on the downbeats.
That helps with the allargando.
