The 19th edition of the World Soundtrack Awards (17-18 Oct 2019), will pay a tribute to an icon of Belgian film music, Frédéric Devreese, who recently celebrated his 90th birthday (on June 2nd).
Frédéric Devreese’s work is highly varied, and besides film music, he has written four piano concertos, a violin concerto, a symphony, chamber music, two operas, ballet suites, and songs.
As a film music composer, he is known for his collaboration with André Delvaux for the 1988 Palme d’Or nominated ‘L’oeuvre au noir’, as well as Marion Hansël’s ‘Les Noces Barbares’ or ‘Du bout des lèvres’ by Jean-Marie Degesves.
A selection of Frédéric Devreese’s iconic film scores will be performed during the 19th World Soundtrack Awards Ceremony and concert on October 18th, and possibly having his presence, although this hasn’t been confirmed yet.
