Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Belgian harpist-composer Félix Godefroid (born Namur, 1818; died Villers-sur-Mer, 1897) was a pupil of François Nadermann, the first professor of harp at the Paris Conservatoire from 1825 to 1835. He travelled extensively throughout Europe on concert tours. His opera The Golden Harp was performed in Paris in 1858 but it is for his concert pieces and studies for solo harp that he will be mainly remembered.
