Pauline Duchambge
† 23.04.1858 in Paris
French composer, singer, and poet Charlotte Antoinette Pauline Duchambge, née de Montet, was born and baptised in Strasbourg in 1776. Often Martinique is given as her birth place, which seems to be wrong.
After her education in a convent in Paris she married Baron Philibert Duchambge at the age of twenty, but divorced shortly afterwards. She studied with Léopold-Bastien Desormery, 11 Jan Ladislav Dussek, Luigi Cherubini and Daniel Auber, whose companion she was. In 1815 she entered into a lifelong friendship with poet Marceline Desbordes-Valmore (1786–1859). Pauline Duchambge published numerous songs between 1816 and 1840, many of them with words by Marceline Desbordes-Valmore. Contemporary reviews approve her musical talent, and her compositions were popular at the time, even if they are nearly forgotten nowadays. Pauline Duchambge died April 23rd 1858 in Paris.
