    The Belgian born Joseph Jongen is one of the most important composers in his native country. While first studying at the Conservatoire of his hometown Liиge, he developed his gift for organ improvisations early in life.

In Munich, he was introduced to the operas of Richard Wagner. Further stop overs were Vienna and Rome. In Paris (1899), he became friends with Vincent d’Indy and Gabriel Faurй.
