    I am researching and collecting all the information I possibly can for exams about the Paris Conservatory.

    I should think the Conservatory(official name is the Conservatoire National Superior de Musique)would have that information. I know that when Tournier retired the class was split between Pierre Jamet and Lily Laskine. I can give you the details and reasons for that if you need it. Laskine left around 1957 and her class was taken over either by Jacqueline Borot or Gerard Devos. Then when Jamet retired in 1963, one of the two above mentioned names took his class. I think Borot replaced Laskine and Devos replaced Jamet, but I’m not sure. Marie-Claire Jamet took over when one of the two, Borot or Devos, retired, and when the other teacher retired, the class went back to one teacher. When Marie-Claire retired, Isabella Moretti took over and is currently there.

    Some have been published: Noel-Gallon, Hujon, Jolivet, Casterede, Werner, Damase, Daniel-Lesure come to mind. Check the major French publishers if you can get to a library.

    Many of the “Morceau de Concours” works are published by Alphonse Leduc and you can find the titles on the last page of any printed work of this publisher.

    Anyway, all these pieces were officilly adviced by the Conservatory, so you can contact with their library to get more information about each edition.

    Noel Gallon’s Fantaisie is published as a Morceau imposee au Concours, but it doesn’t give the year. His Deux Etudes give the year 1961 (pub. by Philippo et Combre).
