He was a composer who was born near Warsaw and who settled in Paris in 1831 after travelling through Poland, Bohemia, Germany and Austria. In 1835 he received French citizenship. Hence, and since his father was a Polonised Frenchman and his mother was Polish, he is sometimes referred to as a Polish composer and sometimes as a French composer.
