Tulou Jean-Louis

Jean-Louis Tulou (1786-1865) was a French flutist, teacher and instrument maker. From 1829 till 1856 he was a Flute Professor at Paris Conservatory. Tulou's flute compositions were at the core of The Paris Conservatory Flute Concours, the most highly regarded flute contest in Paris for almost three decades (1832-1860).
