JAN BLOCKX  

(1851 - 1912)

A pupil of Peter Benoit, and, in Leipzig, a friend of Grieg and of Sinding, Jan Blockx made an important contribution to Flemish opera, and his reputation rests chiefly on this.

Opera

Herbergprinses was first performed in 1896 and marked the beginning of Flemish Opera. His works are influenced by Flemish folksong.

Orchestral Music

Blockx’s orchestral music includes a set of Flemish Dances, again drawing on the traditions of Flemish folk music.
