Émile Jaques-Dalcroze (1865 - 1950)

Émile Jaques-Dalcroze is best remembered today for his development of Eurhythmics which teaches the appreciation of music through movement. Jaques-Dalcroze was a composer of considerable stature in his own right, with a prolific output for piano. A pupil of Delibes and Fauré in Paris, but also of Bruckner and Fuchs in Vienna, he focused his musical practice and pedagogy on certain elements that it had in common with jazz, including of course variations in rhythm and (at least in dance) improvisation.
