Albert Huybrechts

Belgian composer Albert Huybrechts began his musical training in the Brussels Conservatory, where among his teachers was Joseph Jongen. In 1926, Huybrechts was granted the exclusive Elisabeth Sprague Coolidge Reward for his Sonate for violin and piano. Huybrechts started teaching harmony in the Brussels Conservatory in 1937, but succumbed to an urgent bout with kidney failing in March, 1938. Huybrechts’ early music discloses the strong impact of French composers Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel. Later on, Huybrechts became acquainted with the music from the modernist composers, specifically that of Alban Berg and Igor Stravinsky. Huybrechts’ worklist carries a couple of symphonic poems, concerted functions, at least two string quartets, additional chamber music, and several songs.
