(1865 - 1942)

Paul Gilson was at the heart of the Flemish late-Romantic symphonic tradition. He held a leading place in the musical life of his native Belgium.

Orchestral Music

Gilson won his greatest orchestral success with his symphonic sketches La Mer (‘The Sea’). His Mélodies écossaises (‘Scottish Melodies’), written in 1891–2, provide repertoire for a large string orchestra. He also wrote extensively for wind and brass band.

Vocal, Chamber and Instrumental Music

Gilson wrote a large number of songs, choral pieces, operas, ballets, and an array of compositions for various chamber groups and for piano.
