from The New Grove:

              As with Bizet, again, Herold’s premature death ended a musical career full of promise for the future. Of all French operatic composers, Herold was certainly the most strongly influenced by German music. He shared Weber’s ideas of musical dramatization and his sometimes bold use of harmonics. However, he was very much the paradigm of French music of his time, and many of his contemporaries regarded him as the greatest composer in France.

Herold himself did not hold his symphonies in very high regard (they are pleasant time-wasters), but the concertos and the ballet (at least) deserve some study.  There is a plethora of his work posted on YT.
