A great French musical composer and critic; born near Grenoble, Dec. 11, 1803; died in Paris, March 8, 1869. In 1830 his cantata "Sardanapalus" won for him the "prize of Rome", which afforded him the means of spending 18 months in Italy. He had already made his mark in Paris with the overtures "Waverley" and "The Vehm Judges"; and among the fruits of his studies in Italy were the overture to "King Lear" and the symphony "The Return to Life". Then followed the long series of his musical works. Among his literary works are "A Musical Tour in Italy and Germany"; "Orchestra Soirees"; and "Treatise on Instrumentation" (1844).
