Marche funèbre d'une marionnette
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Charles Gounod (1818–1893) can justifiably be regarded as the central figure in French music of the third quarter of the nineteenth century. His compositions included symphonies, songs and religious works, though he is best known for operas such as Faust. The charming Marche funèbre d’une marionnette (‘Funeral march of a marionette’) was first published as a piano piece in 1872, and its popularity was such that Gounod provided an orchestral version six years later.
