WORONOFF, Wladimir

Wladimir WORONOFF (St. Petersburg, 5th January 1903 - Brussels, 21st April 1980) left Russia after the Revolution, settled in Belgium in 1922 and became a Belgian citizen.

At the age of ten, he started studying the violin but later abandoned the instrument. From 1918 to 1922 he studied composition with Alexander Schwartz in Berlin. Much later he studied with André Souris in Brussels.

From 1946 to 1948 he concentrated especially on the twelve-ton technique. In only three of his works he applies the rules of the dodecaphonic system. His other compositions are mostly modal.

In 1954 Wladimir Woronoff destroyed quite a number of his early works and completely revised the remaining ones.
