Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Fran ois-Adrien Boieldieu (16 December 1775, Rouen - 8 October 1834, Varennes-Jarcy, Essonne) was a French composer, mainly of operas.Born under the Ancien R gime in Rouen, Adrien Boieldieu received his musical education first from the choirmaster and then from the organist of the local cathedral. During the Reign of Terror, Rouen was one of the few towns to maintain a significant musical life and in 1793 a series of concerts was organised featuring the celebrated violinist Pierre Rode and the tenor Pierre-Jean Garat. It was during this time that Boieldieu composed his earliest works to texts written by his father (La fille coupable in 1793, followed by Rosalie et Mirza in 1795). They brought him immediate success.show more
