Ferdinand Frederic Barlow
Contributed by: Marie-Charlotte Barlow
He was first, an engineer having attended the Polytechnician School of Zurich, beginning music when he was 28 years old. He was a writer and composer of music for piano and violin, Sonatinas and Sinfoniettas for orchestra, "Sinfonietta des Saisons", voice music, "Poèmes Chinois" - "Ave Maria", and an Opera ,"Gladys". His work was a great success in the fifties.
Unfortunetly, he had no children, not a big family or friends to manage his musical production after he died and, now, he is forgotten!
He was non-violent, liberal and very sweet.
