  Mathieu JODIN (Dison 1878 - Verviers 1960 )

MATHIEU JODINMathieu Jodin was born in Dison on February 20,1878 and he died in Verviers on January 16,1960. At a very young age already, Mathieu Jodin showed his natural aptitude for music, poetry and natural sciences. in 1886, he undertook his music studies at the School for Music in Verviers where he worked the violin and later the viola, upon the advice of Director Louis Kefer. His studies were rewarded by a first prize of viola and a second prize of bassoon in 1895. In 1898, he obtained a 1st Prize in harmony and he also translated the Counterpoint Treaty of Jadassohn, published by Breitkopf and Härtel, into French. Mathieu Jodin was a graduate of the Higher School for Textiles in Verviers and his career as an engineer at the Peltzer company slowed down his musical activities very little only. He also composed numerous works in a great variety of forms, including an important production of religious music. Mathieu Jodin had to discontinue his activities as an instrumental performer during the period between the two World Wars because of an attack of rheumatism, but up to the very end, he retained the use of his considerable mental faculties, together with great enthusiasm and a desire to learn, supported by a firm and humanistic way of thinking. In his final years, he became tempted by dodecaphonic music.
