André Mathieu

ANDRÉ MATHIEU (1929-1968) displayed substantial talent at composition and piano at a very young age, giving his first recital at age 6. At age 7, he began studying in Paris, and later studied composition with Harold Morris. At age 13 he won first prize in a composition competition organized by the New York Philharmonic, later performing his winning concerto at Carnegie Hall. After several years performing throughout North America, Mathieu returned to Paris, where he studied with Arthur Honegger. After his death, several of his works were arranged by Vic Vogel, and constituted the official music of the 21st Olympiad in Montreal, 1976.
