André JADOT (Angleur 1931 - Liège 2000)
André Jadotwas born in Angleur on August 10, 1931. After his secondary school studies in the classical languages section and his musical studies completed at the Royal Academy of Music i, Liège (violin, harmony, counterpoint and fugue), he was appointed teacher of musical education for secondary education for secondary schools. As from 1969, he was made a teacher of written harmony at the Royal Academy of Music in Liège and from 1976, he became a teacher of counterpoint and fugue. At the same time, he was entrusted in 1972 with the inspection of musical education courses in secondary schools and in teachers' training colleges. Compositions by André Jadot feature an artistry that reaches the listener directly and the interest of which owes nothing to scholarly philosophico-technico-literary comments used, unfortunately, all too frequently for the purpose of masking a certain lack of know-how. andré Jadot retired in 1987 and has concentrated, since then, on chamber music, essentially in a string quartet, as well as on composing works destined for this ensemble.
