L'Aspirant de Marine Opéra Comique en deux Actes Paroles de MMrs. Rochefort & Decomberousse... avec Accompt. de Piano par V. Rifaut. [Piano-vocal score]
Paris: J. Delahante, 1834. A French harpist and composer, Labarre studied the harp with Bochsa, Cousineau and Nadermann and composition with Boieldieu. "The musical style of his operas derives from the works of Boieldieu and Adam, and anticipates those of Offenbach; although they never achieved the popularity of Meyerbeer or Halévy, several of his works, such as Jovita, remained in the repertory throughout the 1850s... He was a conductor at the Opéra-Comique from 1847 to 1849, and later was appointed director of the imperial chapel. He succeeded Antoine Prumier as professor of harp at the Paris Conservatoire (1867-70), where Léon Gatayes and Félix Godefroid were among his pupils. During the last years of his life he was music critic for Paris illustré. He was admitted to the Légion d'Honneur in 1862." Frédéric Robert and Fiona Clampin in Grove Music Online. Gomis, a Spanish composer, knew Manuel García and was befriended by Rossini. "Between 1831 and 1836 Gomis wrote the music for four operas performed at the Opéra-Comique: Le diable à Seville, about General Riego's 1820 army rebellion; Le revenant, based on 'Wandering Willie's Tale' in Scott's Redgauntlet, and much praised for the 'Chanson du sabbat'; Le portefaix, his most successful opera; and Rock le barbu, acclaimed for the purity of its melodies."
