François Emmanuel Joseph Bazin (pronounced [fʁɑ̃.swa ba.zɛ̃]) (4 September 1816 – 2 July 1878) was a well-known French opera composer during the nineteenth century.
Born in Marseille, Bazin was a student of Daniel Auber at the Conservatoire de Paris. After completing his education there, Bazin later taught harmony at the Conservatoire. He was succeeded by his own student Émile Durand. For his other pupils, See: List of music students by teacher: A to B#François Bazin..
At age 23, Bazin's cantata Loyse de Monfort won the 1840 Prix de Rome. Le Voyage en Chine, which premiered at the Opéra-Comique in Paris, is his best-known composition, and continued to be staged well into the 20th century. Although his many light operas were popular during his lifetime, they are rarely staged today. A handful of arias are still occasionally performed, including "Je pense à vous" from Maître Pathelin, recorded by Roberto Alagna.
Bazin died at age 61 in Paris.
