The World Soundtrack Awards will pay a tribute to an icon of Belgian film music, Frédéric Devreese, who recently celebrated his 90th birthday.

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 beautiful pictures such as Marion Hansël's "Les Noces Barbares", "Il Maëstro" ou encore "Du bout des lèvres" de Jean-Marie Degesves.

“Frédéric Devreese’s oeuvre is highly varied. Besides four piano concertos, he has written a violin concerto, a symphony, chamber music, two operas, ballet suites, songs and film music. His film music would have a significant influence on his other works", says 'Matrix New Music Center'

A selection of Frédéric Devreese's iconic film scores will be performed during the 19th World Soundtrack Awards Ceremony on October 18th.
