Beck studied in Zurich, Berlin and Paris. He resided in Paris for nine years, where time he connected with Honegger and Roussel. Although he didn’t actually research with these composers, he was significantly affected by them. This impact is seen in his move from a past due Romantic compositional design to 1 of neo-Baroque. He progressed into a method that was free from tonality, leading to in such functions as =Oratorium= (1933-34). His later on works had been simpler in consistency and used processed folksong motifs.
