[Julien Tiersot and the craze for popular song from the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century]
// WEDNESDAY FEB. 16, 2022 • 5 PM • AUBAGNE //
Julien Tiersot was a musician, arranger, composer, musicologist, passionate about popular music and scholarly music. It is said of him that he was one of the precursors of modern ethnomusicology, because alongside his field research, which concerns the repertoires of the oral tradition of our territories (in Bresse, Pays de l’Ain, Normandy, Morvan, Berry, French Alps …), he also approached “the music of distant peoples”. Born on July 5, 1857 in Bourg en Bresse, Julien Tiersot has left many and abundant works. In Rhône-Alpes, his publication “Chansons populaires recueils dans les Alpes Françaises (Savoie et Dauphiné)” published in 1903, remains a capital reference and was the founding work of ethnological collection in the Alps. In Berry, his book “La chanson populaire et les écrivains romantiques” remains the essential source for researchers and musicians in this region. We will place Julien Tiersot in the historical context of his time by detailing his work on popular song and recounting the history of the craze of his century for these repertoires.
