Madeleine Boucherit piano; Jules Boucherit violin

Saint-Saëns, Scarlatti, Handel and more


  • Madeleine Boucherit piano
  • Jules Boucherit violin

The second concert given in 1901 by the French brother and sister Jules and Madeleine Boucherit. Having leaned more towards earlier repertoire in their first recital, this second afternoon featured some works by more contemporary composers including Sarasate, Hubay and René Lenormand.

While Madeleine would go on to work chiefly with children, teaching conducting and piano as well as directing the Petits Concerts Mozart chamber orchestra, Jules continued his concert career, playing regularly with Magda Tagliaferro. As a teacher, his students included Ginette Neveu, Henri Temianka, Manuel Rosenthal and Ivry Gitlis.
