Free Piano Sheets of Rene-Louis Becker
The Frenchborn American composer, Rene-Louis Becker, was born to Edouard and his wife, Adele, in the town of Bischheim, Alsase, France. It took most of Edouard's income to raise the children and pay for their training at Strasbourg's Conservatory of Music. Some noted musicians of the time were their teachers. Rene's piano teachers, for example, included Ernest Munch whose son Carl (Charles Munch) became music director and conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Another was Fritz Blumer, a pupil of Franz Liszt. Rene studied advanced composition under Carl Somborn, a pupil of Josef Rheinberger. His organ instruction came from Adolphe Gessner, a Swiss organist. Four of Edouard Becker's five children went on to careers in music as performers, teachers, or composers. The composer Johannes Brahms came to the Strasbourg Conservatory once a year to perform a piano recital. In the spring of 1894, young Rene L. Becker was chosen to turn the pages for the Maestro during the performance because of his high scholastic standing. It was the supreme honor for a conservatory student.
