Belgian pianist, a city carillonneur of Bruges and a composer.
Louis or Lodewijk Hubené was a nephew of the city carillonneur Dominique II Berger and had been raised and given a musical education by him, after being orphaned at an early age. In 1847 Hubené became a teacher of piano at the newly founded Music School of Bruges, which he remained until 1850. For more than 30 years, he was a music teacher at the English Convent, and he also gave a lot of private lessons.
As of 1832 Hubené became the assistant of his uncle, whom he succeeded as city carilloneur in 1838. He remained in this position until 1864, the year in which he was succeeded by Remi Berragan.
After having been organist at the St. Salvator's Cathedral, he was appointed as organist of the St. James’s Church in 1870.
He died on 23 March 1871.
