DELVAUX, Albert

Albert DELVAUX (Louvain, 31st May 1913) studied initially at the Conservatory of Louvain and continued his studies at the Royal Conservatory of Liège where he obtained prizes for chamber music and cello-playing. He continued his studies with François Rasse and Joseph Leroy. He also attended courses in conducting given by Igor Markevitch and Wangenheim at the Salzburg Mozarteum.

He persues a triple career as a pedagogue, composer and conductor. Until his retirement in 1978 he was director and teacher at the Music Academy of Sint-Niklaas and he was also professor of counterpoint and fugue at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels.

As a composer he received several awards and won in 1957 the 3rd prize with his “Esquisses”, in 1961 the 1st prize with his “Sinfonia burlesca” in the “International Music Competition Queen Elisabeth of Belgium”.

His musical style combines classical structure, mastership in counterpoint and well balanced orchestration. His admiration for Debussy, Ravel and Messiaen shows in his own music, sometimes he is even tempted by the dodecaphony.
