About

Encouraged, from his earliest years, by L Adam (his godfather)), Fétis and Grétry, Ferdinand Hérold entered the Paris Conservatory at the age of eleven. He would have as teachers L Adam (piano), Kreutzer (violin), Catel (harmony) and Méhul (composition). In his concertos Hérold proved to be a marvellous melody writer. In fact Hérold, a “classic” composer, but already “romantic” at some moments, astonishes by his melodic inventiveness. The discovery of the manuscripts of these concertos at the National Library of Paris has allowed to save these works from an unforgivable omission.
