SCHMIT, Camille

Camille SCHMIT (Aubange (Luxemburg), 30th March 1908 - Limelette (Brabant), 11th May 1976

Complete music studies were taken at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels from 1928 to 1937. He was an active member of the “Séminaire des Arts” founded by André Souris.

From 1923 to 1939 he was an organist at Longwy (France). Afterwards, from 1940 to 1948, he played the organ at the cathedral of Arlon. Between 1947 and 1965 he was on the staff of the Royal Conservatory of Liège, first as professor of harmony, later as professor of counterpoint and fugue. From 1966 until his retirement in 1973, he was director of the French section of the Royal Conservatory of Brussels.

As a composer he did not create abundantly and his severe self-criticism gave him the unfortunate habit of regularly destroying some of his works. Initially he used a style where polytonality was the strong feature. Later on he tended towards a rigorous application of the dodecaphonic system.
