Influenced by Rimsky-Korsakov and the Russian 'Five', the Belgian
composer August de Boeck was taught by Paul Gilson, with whom
he is credited with the introduction of musical impressionism
into Belgium. He was among the most distinguished Belgian composers
of his generation, contributing notably to music for the stage,
choral and chamber music.
