“He had the utmost confidence in his music and wrote to me that, like Bach, he was putting his works in a cupboard, and they would be discovered later.” (Paul Loyonnet, Mémoires, talking about Lucien Durosoir). An acclaimed violin virtuoso in Europe before 1914, a composer living in seclusion after 1918, Lucien Durosoir has long remained unknown simply because he refused to publish his works and has only reappeared now owing to the publication of the 41 works he composed between 1919 and 1950. The two sides of his nature were therefore polarised by the Great War, which formed the axis of his life. Before it, he was an enthusiastic young man, immersed in Romanticism: a movement which influenced his education and formed the basis of his violin repertory, his poetic reading and his German culture. After it, he was a man unable to forget the horror and barbarity and who, turning his back on the literary enthusiasms of his youth, came to regard life purely as a lucid and dogged fight against adversity.
