Gounod Return to List of Composers
Charles Francois Gounod was born in France in 1818. This composer belonged to the Romantic period, and died in 1893. Charles Gounod

Charles Gounod (1818 -1893) was a French operatic and choral composer born and died in Paris.  He lived in Paris at a time when light operas by Meyerbeer and other foreigners resident in Paris were all the rage.  He started to contribute some more substantial, melodic and genuinely French music to the Paris scene.

He studied at the Paris Conservatoire, won the Prix du Rom,, became influenced by the music of Mendelssohn and Bach, and started to write his own Operas, and some oratorios.

Two of his operas remain popular today, Romeo et Juliete, and Faust, but the latter is by far his best known work.
