Solon Michaelides, Scholiste?

Biographies of Cypriot composer Solon Michaelides (1905–1975) routinely note that he studied composition in Paris from 1930–1934, earning his composition diploma from the Schola Cantorum under the tutelage of Guy de Lioncourt (1885–1961) while also taking additional lessons from Nadia Boulanger at the Ecole Normale.1 Following his studies in Paris, Michaelides returned to Cyprus where he embarked on his long and prolific career as a teacher, conductor, scholar, and composer. Given the rich cultural environment of Paris in the 1920s and 30s, along with the particular reputation of the Schola Cantorum as the focal organization of French nationalist musical conservatism, it is rather astonishing that Michaelides’s biographers have not attempted to connect his student experiences to his later work.
