Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jean-Joseph de Mondonville (December 25, 1711 (baptised) - October 8, 1772), also known as Jean-Joseph Cassan a de Mondonville, was a French violinist and composer. He was a younger contemporary of Jean-Philippe Rameau and enjoyed great success in his day. Pierre-Louis Daquin (son of the composer Louis Claude Daquin) claimed: "If I couldn't be Rameau, there's no one I would rather be than Mondonville. Mondonville was born in Narbonne in Southwest France to an aristocratic family which had fallen on hard times. In 1733 he moved to Paris where he gained the patronage of the king's mistress Madame de Pompadour and won several musical posts, including violinist for the Concert Spirituel.show more
