Description

For this catalogue the author has researched the libraries and private collections of the world to gather together information concerning every known manuscript of J.-F. LeSueur. This composer played a vital role in the music history of France for a full half-century (1780-1830). Already well-known before the Revolution as the M�itre de Chapelle of Notre Dame de Paris he became even more famous as composer for the Th��tre Feydeau and the Op�ra as the official composer for Emperor Napoleon the First and not the least as the teacher of Berlioz. For the first time Prof. Mongr�dien offers a complete description of the LeSueur manuscripts in the repertoire of the Royal�later the Imperial�Court of the Tuileries from 1802 until 1830.
