Extract

(Christiane)

(b Leopoldsburg, Jan 25, 1914; d 2002). Belgian composer. She studied harmony and counterpoint at the Limburgsche Orgelschool in Hasselt, also receiving prizes there for piano and organ performance. She taught music and singing at the Koninklÿk Atheneum of Eisden and at the Atheneum of Maaseik (1934–69). In 1945 she founded and became director of the Muziekakademie in Eisden (based in Maasmechel from 1973), and a decade later founded a section of Jeugd en Muziek in the same city. She composed most of her works for small ensembles. Initially influenced by impressionism, her music later became neo-classic in character. Her writings include the monographs Van kleuterdreun naar notenleer (‘From Children’s Songs to Solfeggio’; Eisden, 1967) and Door volkslied tot notenleer (‘Solfeggio through Folksongs’; Eisden, 1968) as well as textbooks for beginning music theory.
