Louis Bruyon Lacombe was born on November 26, 1818 in Bourges. In 1829 - 1831 studied at the Paris Conservatory under Joseph Zimmerman . The very next year, he embarked on his first tour, which led him to Vienna , where Lacombe began to improve his performance skills under the direction of Karl Czerny , studied harmony and counterpoint with Simon Zechter and Ignaz Zayfried . To this time belong his first compositions.
After spending a few years in Vienna and after a long tour of Germany after that, Lacombe returned to Paris in 1840 . Over time, his interests shifted from the field of performance in the direction of composition; He also wrote a number of articles about music published in the Paris periodicals and compiling a posthumously published volume of Philosophy and Music ( fr. Philosophie et musique ; 1896).
The creative legacy of Lacombe includes several operas, of which the late opera Winkelried (about the hero of the struggle for Swiss independence Arnold Winkelried ; 1881 , staged 1892 ) is considered to be the most significant; , overture "Mitternacht" and many pieces for piano.
