(1865-1935)
Born October 1, 1865 in Paris. He studied at the Paris Conservatoire, and from 1913 to 1935 where he taught composition and conducting.
Legacy of Duke is relatively small, but each of his work represents a significant artistic value. He published his works only when he was sure of their merits, for example, he even offered to destroy his last composition - Peri (La Pri, 1910), if it is to light any flaws. In stylistic creativity of the composer - a synthesis of the best features of neoclassicism and postromantizma. His Symphony in C (1897), Variations on a theme ZH.F. Rameau (Variations sur une thme de JPRameau, 1903) and Sonata in E flat major for piano (1900) - excellent examples of musical neoclassicism. Piano Sonata - the first essay in this genre. Imbued with a romantic mood choreographic poem Peri - a masterpiece of orchestral writing. Opera Ariane and Bluebeard by Maeterlinck (Ariane et Barbe-Bleue, 1907) - one of the best French operas. The most popular is the creation of Duke - sorcerer's apprentice (L'Apprenti sorcier, 1897) to Goethe's ballad.

Sometimes called the Duke vagneriantsem, but traces of this influence can be found only in the climax of Peri, lasting only a few cycles: the characteristic wave-like increase in the orchestra. Throughout the rest of the Duke - a real Frenchman, it should rather be compared with Berlioz. Duke died in Paris on May 17, 1935.
