Biography

François-Adrien Boieldieu (December 16, 1775 in Rouen – October 8, 1834 in Varennes-Jarcy, Essonne). Born under the Ancien Régime in Rouen, Adrien Boieldieu received his musical education first from the choirmaster and then from the organist of the local cathedral. During the Reign of Terror, Rouen was one of the few towns to maintain a significant musical life and in 1793 a series of concerts was organised featuring the celebrated violinist Pierre Rode and the tenor Pierre-Jean Garat. It was during this time that Boieldieu composed his earliest works to texts written by his father (La fille coupable in 1793, followed by Rosalie et Mirza in 1795). They brought him immediate success.


Perhaps the most significant composer in France in the early decades of the nineteenth century, contemporaries dubbed him “the French Mozart.”
