Notes & Reviews:

Born into a musical family in Lausanne in 1875, Denereaz first studied the humanities before entering the Royal Conservatory of Music in Dresden at age 16 where he studied composition with Felix Draeseke. He wrote his first symphony at age 20, which was premiered in 1896 under Draeseke's direction. The same year Denereaz returned to Lausanne where he was appointed organist of the Saint-Francois Cathedral, holding this position for 51 years. An influential teacher, his students included Ernest Ansermet. He was quite active in Swiss musical life, contributing to the founding of the Association of Swiss Musicians in Berne and creating the musical plans for the great organs in the Lausanne Cathedral.
