Demersseman Jules-Auguste Edouard

Jules Auguste Demersseman (1833-1866) was a French flutist and composer, best known for the Sixième Solo de Concert No 6.
Born near Belgian border, he went to study flute with Jean-Louis Tulou at the Conservatoire de Paris where he won the first prize at the age of twelve.

Despite the fact that he did not favor the modern type of transverse flute designed by Theobald Böhm (which cost him professorship at the Conservatoire de Paris), Demersseman was one of the first French composers who wrote music for saxophone. He was only 33 years old when he died, presumably from tuberculosis.
