Jacques Offenbach
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search Offenbach in the 1860s Jacques Offenbach (born Jacob Offenbach ; 20 June 1819 – 5 October 1880) was a German -born French composer and cellist of the Romantic era and one of the originators of the operetta form. Of German-Jewish ancestry, he was one of the most influential composers of popular music in Europe in the 19th century, and many of his works remain in the repertory. Offenbach's numerous operettas , such as Orpheus in the Underworld , and La belle Hélène , were extremely popular in both France and the English-speaking world during the 1850s and 1860s. They combined political and cultural satire with witty grand opera parodies. His popularity in France went down during the 1870s after the Second Empire , and he fled France , but during the last years of his life, his popularity rebounded, and several of his operettas are still performed. While his name remains associated most closely with the French operetta and the Second Empire, it is Offenbach's one fully operatic masterpiece

France Genre(s) Romantic Occupation(s) Composer , Conductor, Violinist, Cellist Jacques Offenbach (June 20, 1819 – October 5, 1880), composer and cellist of the Romantic era, was one of the originators of the operetta form. His light comical compositions reflected the ease and frivolity of life in France during the late nineteenth century. Offenbach sought to explore a universe of flamboyant French feeling by composing music that is characterized by gaiety and cheerfulness. Often writing it a satirical style and dealing with mythological subjects, Offenbach's opera "Orpheus in the Underworld," caused great controversy in the French musical community. Near the end of his life, he wrote one serious opera, The Tales of Hoffmann , which became his more famous work. He was a highly prolific composer with over 100 stage works to his credit. The

Classical Composer Biography: Jacques Offenbach
by Betty Fry
December 29, 2001
For my first article in this series on Classical Composers, I am going to begin with Jacques Offenbach, whose lovely melodies from 'The Tales of Hoffman' I am listening to even as I write these words. His work can be said to belong to the years between 1825 and 1900 which, by musicians, is referred to as the Romantic Era. Musical styles of this time can be described as rich and dramatic whether instrumental or vocal, and very often were songs, or music, that told a story. Although of German-Jewish origins, Offenbach has come to be thought of as essentially a French composer because of his great regard for Paris and its ways, to which he became addicted. He was born Jacob Eberst in 1819, but his father changed the family name to Offenbach after he had left his hometown Offenbach-am-Main and settled in Cologne, and it was there, while earning a living from composition, music teaching, and book binding that he became known to his colleagues as 'Der Offenbacher'. The tale is told of how, as a boy, Offenbach was taught to play the violin, but was discouraged from learning the cello. However he wanted to play the cello so much he would secretly practice on his father's instrument, and then one day amazed everyone by taking part in a string quartet when the real cellist failed to turn up. He went on to make it his particular instrument.

The witty and satirical operettas of Jacques Offenbach, b. Cologne, Germany, June 20, 1819, d. Oct. 5, 1880, ridiculed the pompous aspects of life during the Second Empire in France, a period when all art, including the theater, was subject to censorship and musical life was dominated by grand opera. Offenbach was the son of the violinist and cantor Isaac Juda Eberst, who came from Offenbach am Main and was known as the "man from Offenbach." Originally named Jacob, he later adopted the French form Jacques and in 1844 became a convert to Roman Catholicism. In 1833 he entered the Paris Conservatory, where he studied cello, and in 1837 he joined the orchestra of the Opera-Comique.
He became conductor of the Theatre Francais in 1849 and opened his own small musical theater, Les Bouffes-Parisiens, in 1855.
