Its Consequences

Paule Maurice (1910-1967) is the little known composer ofTableaux de

Provence: Suite for Saxophone and Orchestra, one of the most frequently recorded and
studied classical saxophone compositions in history. A more in depth study of Paule
Maurice reveals a talented composer and dedicated professor whose career at the
Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris and l’Ecole Normale de Musique
de Paris spanned over twenty-five years untilher untimely death at age fifty-seven.
Maurice composed for theatre, ballet, French National Radio, orchestra, voice, piano,
flute, clarinet, and saxophone. There is question as to the whereabouts of many of her
manuscripts.
This thesis attempts to bring to bear the life and accomplishments of a talented
French composer not well remembered in music history.
