  • Marie Cornaz


(b Liège, July 20, 1902; d Liège, Sept 16, 1989). Belgian composer and folklorist. Born into a family of musicians and singers, she studied at the Liège Conservatory, where the composer Sylvain Dupuis was among her teachers, and won several prizes, including those for piano, chamber music, harmony and fugue; she later became a professor of solfège at the conservatory. She was awarded second prize in the Prix de Rome contest in 1929. Her output is dominated by vocal music, whether for the stage, solo voice or choir, in a style that is influenced by Walloon popular folk music; some pieces are in Walloon dialect and describe the people of her region. As a folklorist, she transcribed the music of many dances and songs and wrote several books and articles about her country’s folk traditions.
