Roger Mathieu was known in Canada in those days as the father of the piano and composition. His composition style was in the beginning heavily influenced by Wagner, Debussy and Scriabin. In 1920 he went overseas to live in Paris, where he was introduced to Albert Roussel and Vincent D´Indy who stimulated him into other directions. He later studied with both at the Schola Cantorum. In 1927 he returned to Montreal, where he began to teach. In 1933 he founded the Institut Canadien de Musique. His output is Phenomenon Unique in the history of Canadian Music. He lived to his death in 1962 in Montreal.
