Notes (2019)

Jean Wiéner (1896–1982) was a French pianist, composer, and concert organizer who strove to celebrate music, regardless of style, by lowering what he perceived to be artificial barriers. He composed extensively for film, radio, television, stage, and the concert hall. Elements of jazz appear in many of his compositions and performances throughout his career. This article attempts to expose his compositional output to a wider audience by examining the published scores in the form of a chronologically arranged bibliography, annotated with references to analyses of his work.
