(1870 - 1894)

Belgian in origin, Guillaume Lekeu studied in Paris with his compatriot César Franck and with Vincent d'Indy. He died of typhoid fever at the age of 24.

Chamber Music

Lekeu is best remembered for his G major Violin Sonata, an intensely lyrical work, and his sonata for piano, with a sonata for cello and piano that was completed after the composer's death by d'Indy, who also completed Lekeu's unfinished Piano Quartet. He also left a completed piano trio.

Vocal Music

Vocal music by Lekeu includes settings of words of his own, notably the Trois poèmes (Three Poems).
