Théodore Gouvy (1819-1898) was a composer who divided his life between France and Germany. His music was profoundly influenced by this dual culture. He passionately dedicated himself to chamber music, without neglecting either compositions for large forces or sacred music. He was the composer of nine symphonies, one Requiem, one Stabat Mater and a Messe Brève, alongside various dramatic works, including six cantatas and two operas.
