Claude Ballif
license gfdl


French composer.

His music is known as a combination of tonality (in the sense of Bartók, for instance) and serialism - a system that he named "metatonality."

Claude Ballif was a committed pedagogue who taught composition and analysis at the Paris Conservatoire from 1971 to 1990, and then at the Sevran conservatory.

He died on 24 July 2004 in Poissons.
