Louis Stanislas Xavier Verroust (1814 – 1863) was a French composer and oboist.
Verroust was born May 10, 1814 in Hazebrouck.
He received 2nd prize in Gustave Vogt's class in oboe in 1833, then first prize the next year. Also a fine violinist, he became 2nd violinist in the orchestra of the Palais-Royal in 1831.
He taught oboe at the Conservatoire de Paris from 1853 to 1860, succeeding Gustave Vogt in this position and preceding Charles Triébert.
His published compositions, many of which included parts for oboe, numbered at least 7 dozen (with Op.85, his next-to-last solo de concert, published posthumously- possibly Op.86 as well).
He died either 9 or 11 April 1863 also in Hazebrouck. Text source : Wikipedia (Hide extended text) ... (Read all)
