Loïsa Puget

Loïsa Puget (11 February 1810 – 24 October 1889) was a French composer.

Life[edit]

Loïsa Puget was born in Paris, her proper first names were Louise Françoise. Her mother was a singer and saw that her daughter received a musical education including study at the same school as George Sand. Her composition teacher was Adolphe Adam. After completing her studies, Puget composed and performed her own music in salons and married her lyricist Gustave Lemoine (1802–1885) in 1845. She was most productive between 1830 and 1845 – apart from some operas she composed the music for over 300 songs. Many of her songs also appeared in editions with guitar accompaniment, some of which were made by prominent guitarists such as Matteo Carcassi.[1]

In 1841 Lemoine and Adolphe d'Ennery wrote a melodrama based on Puget's most successful song À la grâce de Dieu, which provided the idea for Donizetti's Linda di Chamounix.[2][3]

Puget died in Pau.
