Lied Elegiaque Op 20
for English horn and strings
by Leon Delcroix (1880-1938)- Belgian composer

Leon Delcroix studied piano with J. Wieniawski and composition with both Ysaye and d’Indy. He conducted theatre orchestras in Belgium from 1909-1927, after which he devoted all of his time to composition. His works range from theatrical and symphonic works to chamber ensembles, including several works for string ensembles and a clarinet quartet. "Lied Elegiaque," opus 20, was composed during January and February of 1909 for Fernand Pierard, who was at that time professor at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels.
