Cesar Cui

a.k.a. Cesar Antonovich Cui, Cesarius-Benjaminus Cui

Author Code: RCCX

Born: Jan. 6, 1835 - Vilnius, Lithuania

Died: Mar. 13, 1918 - St. Petersburg, Russia

Of French and Lithuanian descent, Cui entered the St. Petersburg Chief Engineering School in 1850. After graduating in 1855, he attended the Nikolaievsky Engineering Academy and two years later began a military career which saw him rise to the rank of general in 1906. His engineering background was an important factor in his military achievements as an expert on fortifications and his textbooks on the subject were widely used. Today, it is for his musical career that he is best remembered. Having learned piano as a young boy, Cui began composing and, in 1859, made his debut as a composer with his orchestral Scherzo, Op. 1 performed at the Russian Musical Society and conducted by Anton Rubenstein. Cui produced a number of operas and orchestral pieces in addition to numerous piano works. He was a good friend of Franz Liszt, who admired his work, and Rimsky-Korsakov, with whom he shared a seat on the Mariinsky Theatre opera selection committee. From 1896 to 1904, he was the director of the St. Petersburg branch of the Russian Musical Society. In 1894, he was elected as a correspondent member of the Academie Francaise and in 1896, the Belgian Academy of Literature and Arts elected him as a member. Cui was also an accomplished music critic and contributed nearly 800 articles to European and Russian periodicals. His major works include William Ratcliff (1869), The Mandarin's Son (1878), Prisoner of the Caucasus (1883), Le Filibustier (1894), Mademoiselle Fifi (1903), 25 Preludes, Op. 64 (1903) and Puss-in-Boots (1915).
