Biography

Suzanne Daneau received her first musical training from her father, Nicolas Daneau, and then studied at the Tournai Music Academy and then the Mons Conservatory. She later studied in Brussels with Paul Gilson. Daneau surpassed her father in her range of music composition, while she concentrated on local subjects, notably La musique et les musiciens nés en terre wallonne. She débuted in 1919 at Tournai, performing Debussy’s sonate pour violoncello et piano. In 1923 she founded the Trio DGL with the violionist Georges Gommaerts and the cellist Édouard Livain. Her talents for composition led her to receive the 1924 Olympic bronze medal for Six Instantanés sportifs. In 1933, Daneau collaborated with Paul Brohée and Edmond Delescluze to create the journal La Gazette musicale de Belgique, which she edited for four years.
