ARTHUR MEULEMANS (1884 - 1966)
A leading figure in Flemish music, Arthur Meulemans developed a musical language strongly influenced by French impressionism, shown particularly in his orchestral writing. His three operas are evidence of his national interest in the music of his native country.
Meulemans wrote 15 symphonies as well as some 50 varied orchestral pieces. His 40 concertos feature most orchestral instruments as soloists.
