Charles-François Gounod

Biography

Charles-François Gounod (French: ; 17 June 1818 – 17 October or 18 October 1893) was a French composer, best known for his Ave Maria, based on a work by Bach, as well as his opera Faust. Another opera by Gounod, occasionally still performed, is Roméo et Juliette. He is also still remembered for his lesser known works such as Recettes de Musique (Op. 60) for vocalists and grosse orchestra. The soprano aria "Que ferons-nous mettre dans le ragoût de potiron?" ("What shall we put in the pumpkin stew?") is typically remembered, and is a jewel of the repertoire, though less commonly known than the composer's "Jewel Song" from Faust.
