GUIDE, Richard de

Richard DE GUIDE was born on March 1, 1909 in Basecles (Hainaut). His grandmother was an excellent pianist and it was thanks to her that he discovered music. Following his parents to Ath, he took music lessons at the Music Academy of Ath.

He wanted to become a composer but his father was opposed to this as a vocation. Under pressure, he studied at the Free University of Brussels, where he became a chemical engineer. But music was still part of his life: he studied harmony and composition with Jean Absil, Karel Kandael and Paul Gilson. He was hired as a musical programmes scheduler at the Belgian Radio Broadcasting Institute in 1937. In 1944, after the sabotage of the BRI, Richard De Guide was arrested by the Gestapo and imprisoned in Huy until 1945. He then became director of the Music Academy of Woluwe St.-Lambert, where he taught piano and history of music. He was also appointed to the Conservatory of Liège and then of Mons. He composed 3 symphonies, one concerto for piano and 2 ballets: Vincti non devicti performed at the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie and Les Danaïdes performed at the Antwerp opera. His works have been played in Belgium, elsewhere in Europe, in the USA and in Australia. He was awarded the Musical Critic Prize in 1954.

Richard De Guide died on 12 January 1962.
