by composer Roger Boutry, performed by Vicente Garcia (trumpet) & Jacobo Cerda (piano)
Roger Boutry (1932 to 2019) was a French composer, conductor and academic. Roger Boutry was born in the 10th arrondissement of Paris, France, on February 27th 1932. Part of a musical family (his mother was a pianist/singer, and his father a trombonist in the Orchestre National de France), he carried out his secondary studies at the Lycee Chaptal. In 1944, he entered the Conservatoire de Paris where he won several first prizes - solfege in 1944 with Lucette Descaves, piano in 1948 with Jean Doyen, harmony in 1949 with Henri Challan, chamber music in 1949 with P Pasquien, piano accompaniment in 1950 with Nadia Boulanger, fugue and counterpoint in 1951 with Noel Gallon, conducting in 1953 with Louis Fourestier, and composition in 1954 with Tony Aubin. Boutry also competed in the Grand prix de Rome in 1954 and was a finalist at the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 1958. He carried out his compulsory military service in Grenoble and Grande Kabylie, after which he began an international concert career in 1962 visiting such countries as the USA, USSR, Australia and Japan. He played under the direction of many eminent conductors, including Andre Cluytens, Pierre Dervaux, Desire-Emile Inghelbrecht, Jean Martinon and Pierre Monteux. He began his own conducting career with the 'Opera de Monte-Carlo Orchestra', then helmed the orchestras of the 'Brussels RATB', the 'Rome RAI', the 'Concerts Colonne', the 'Orchestre Lamoureux' and the 'Pasdeloup Orchestra'. As a professor back at the Conservatoire de Paris from 1962 to 1997, Boutry taught harmony to students who notably included Claude Pichaureau, Thierry Escaich, Olivier Chassain, Francois Weigel and Naji Hakim (as well as others). He furthermore taught choral conducting at the Centre National de Preparation au CAEM in Paris from 1965 to 1970, and in January 1973 was appointed music director of the Republican Guard, responsible for their harmony orchestra, symphony orchestra, string orchestra and chamber music ensembles (until February 1997). He went on to win numerous awards connected to these and many other orchestral directorships. Roger Boutry died in Paris on September 7th 2019, aged 87. [ Translated from: ]

Hundreds of very talented musicians pass away each year, some without much recognition at all. On "Rest In Peace ✚", I aim to give them a fitting 'send-off', with a decent Tribute. I hope you will join me in marking their passing.....
