Vic Legley (1915-1994)

Victor Legley was a central figure in Belgian musical life during his lifetime. He had contact with many European composers, was an influential teacher at the Brussels Conservatory and his music was regularly performed.

He composed symphonic music as well as vocal and instrumental chamber music as well as one opera "La farce des deux nues". His music is free atonal, follows classical forms and is accessible to the listener without being simplistic.

In order compile a new thematic catalogue, two previous catalogues have been built upon: "Victor Legley (°1915) - Inleiding tot zijn oeuvre" (1977) by Carine Tessely and "La producció de Victor Legley" (2009) by Ronald de Roeck. These licensce and doctoral thesis are not readily available, are written in languages which are not accessible for everyone (Dutch and Catalan respectively) and are not complete. Some sources which were until recently unavailable allow us to complete these catalogues.

This thematic catalogue will give as complete an overview of Legley's oeuvre as possible and will be freely available online to all those who are interested. The catalogue will appear in May 2016.
