Théodore Gouvy, between France and Germany
See the link
Gouvy was a man of dual, French and German, culture, which can be felt in his works. Being a man of some means, he was not obliged to earn a living from music and he divided his time between Paris, Leipzig and Hombourg-Haut (in the Moselle department, Lorraine), where he would often go to seek inspiration (his brother owned a metallurgical establishment there). Although he was held in high regard on both sides of the Rhine (he was a corresponding member of the Berlin Royal Academy and the Paris Academy of Fine Arts), Gouvy nevertheless suffered from being a “foreigner” in France: until he was able to obtain French citizenship in 1851, he had no access to the official networks. His œuvre is largely dominated by chamber music, but he also produced many orchestral compositions (including nine symphonies), religious pieces (Requiem, Stabat Mater, Messe brève) and several dramatic works, including six cantatas and two operas.
