MOULAERT, Pierre

Pierre MOULAERT (Brussels, 24th September 1907 - Brussels, 13th November 1967) studied at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels with his father Raymond Moulaert and with Joseph Jongen.

He started as a violinist in the orchestra of the “Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie”. Afterwards he became director of the Academy of Music of Uccle and professor of harmony at the Conservatory of Brussels. He was also an influential music critic whose articles appeared in the Belgian paper “La Dernière Heure” from 1935 until his death.

As a composer, initially he was very much involved with film music. He wrote for most of the Belgian producers, Storck, Cauvin, Cleinge. Afterwards came stage music and still later he composed symphonic works.

His numerous activities prevented him from being a prolific composer but what he wrote is marked by a lucid, even linear, construction with a delicate taste for counterpoint.
