Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Harry Halbreich (born February 9, 1931, Berlin) is a Belgian musicologist. He studied with Arthur Honegger and later with Olivier Messiaen at the Paris Conservatoire. From 1970 to 1976 he was Lecturer (German: Dozent) in Musical Analysis at the Royal Conservatory in Mons. He worked on numerous radio broadcasts and co-founded the Belgian music magazine Crescendo for which he has been major contributor. He is known for a number of books, articles and studies on modern and contemporary music, including works on Messiaen, Claude Debussy, Arthur Honegger and Bohuslav Martin . He has prepared musical catalogues of the works of Honegger and Martin, and their works are therefore sometimes referred to by their H number. He assisted Nicolas Basri in orchestrating Honegger's opera, La morte de Sainte Alm enne, originally written in 1918 for voice and piano; the new version was premiered in Utrecht on 26 November 2005, on the 50th anniversary of the composer's death.show more
