Nadia Boulanger (1887-1979) was one of the twentieth century’s most influential musical figures. A skilled and deft composer, she became far better known as a teacher of composition and music theory, and for her profound influence on hundreds of young composers, many of whom would eventually be recognized among the greats in their field. Among her diverse list of pupils were Aaron Copland, Elliot Carter, Walter Piston, Quincy Jones, Karel Husa, George Antheil and Burt Bacharach – just to name a few.
