François DEVIENNE (1759-1803)


francois DEVIENNEFrançois DEVIENNE was a French composer and professor for flute at the Paris Conservatory.

François DEVIENNE was born in Joinville, as the youngest of fourteen children of a saddlemaker. After receiving his first musical training as a choirboy in his hometown, he was playing in various Parisian ensembles as soloist and orchestra player. He studied the flute with Félix Rault and in 1780 he joined the household of Cardinal de Rohan. He was active in Paris as a flautist, bassoonist and composer, and played bassoon at the Paris Opera. He wrote successful operas in the 1790s, including Les visitandines (1792) which brought him much success.

His output comprises ~300 instrumental works that are mostly written for wind instruments. There are a dozen of flute concertos, sinfonias for woodwinds, quartets and trios for different ensembles, 12 operas, 4 bassoon concertos, and 6 bassoon sonatas in an elegant melodic style.

DEVIENNE's concertos, however, are, remarkably enough, frequently closer to the spirit of MOZART, who while in Paris had attended the Concerts spirituels. It was there that DEVIENNE frequently, and with great success, played his compositions, which were brilliant reflections of the elegant tone of Paris at the time. Concerto No. 2 in D major is an example of grace and balance, two characteristics to be found in the fine portrait of the composer by Jacques-Louis David, qualities which are associated with MOZART, explaining why DEVIENNE was called the French MOZART.
