Bazin was a French composer and conductor. "He became a student at the Paris Conservatoire in 1834, and studied composition with Henri-Montan Berton and Halévy. He won premiers prix for harmony and accompaniment (1836), counterpoint and fugue (1836) and for organ playing (1839). The jury of the Prix de Rome awarded him a second prize on 30 April 1839, and the first prize on 23 May 1840. His cantata written for the competition, Loÿse de Montfort, was performed at the Opéra on 7 October 1840." Gérard Streletski in Grove Music Online. Item #29327
