August Louis Baeyens (1895 - 1966)

August Louis Baeyens, who was born and died in Antwerp, was a violist and composer in the classical sphere with a musical language open to the avant-garde. From 1927 to 1932, at the head of the Antwerps Kamermuziekensemble (‘Antwerp Chamber Ensemble’), which he founded, he gave many Belgian premieres of music by Schoenberg, Berg, Milhaud, Bartók, Hindemith, Stravinsky, and several Flemish composers. He ranged in almost all genres: operas, eight symphonies, six string quartets and choral music.
