FERDINAND HEROLD  

(1791 - 1833)

A pupil of the violinist Rodolphe Kreutzer and of Adolphe Adam’s father at the Paris Conservatoire, Hérold made his name as a composer of opéra comique in Paris with works that retained their popularity through the 19th century.

Stage Works

Hérold is chiefly known in concert or brass-band repertoire for his overture to the comic opera Zampa of 1831. His ballet La fille mal gardée remains in current ballet repertoire, the score making use of excerpts from Rossini and from popular French songs.
