Sonata for flute and piano in D Major

Sonata for flute and piano in D Major

By Jadin Louis-Emmanuel

L.E. Jadin: Sonata for flute and piano in D Major, Op. 10 No 1 (Pour Flute Et Piano / Et Basse Ad Lib.) was composed in 1789 when Jadin was only 21 years old and worked as a pianist at the Théâtre de Monsieur.

The Sonata was written in the year when the French Revolution started. At that time French audience wanted music that clearly depicted something, whether an image or emotion, and some composers (e.g. Gossec, Méhul) even were recruited by Revolutionary committees to provide music for Revolutionary festivals of celebration.

Louis-Emmanuel Jadin (1768-1853) was a French composer, pianist and harpsichordist. Born in Versailles in a family of musicians, he initially studied piano with his brother Hyacinthe Jadin, composed his first opera at the age of 20 and got a position at the Théâtre de Monsieur (The Théâtre Feydeau) the next year. During the Revolution, he enlisted in the National Guard, taking part in festivals and ceremonies.
Starting from 1796 he taught music theory at the National Conservatory in Paris until 1804 when he took the position of director of the Théâtre Molière. From 1805 till 1816 he taught piano at the Paris Conservatory, leaving that position to become a governor at the Royal Chapel. He was made Chevalier of the Légion d’honneur in 1824. His musical legacy consists of more than 40 operas, several works for orchestra, and chamber music compositions.
