Biography

Jacques-Christophe Naudot (ca. 1690 – 25 November 1762) was a French composer, type-setter, and flutist. Little is known of his early life. He was married in 1719. Most of his compositions were published in Paris between 1726 and 1740. The poet Denesle (c 1694 - c 1759) wrote a book called “Syrinx, ou l’origine de la flutte”. It was dedicated to Naudot, Michel Blavet and Lucas, and published in 1739. He was briefly imprisoned in the anti-Masonic persecutions of 1740. Boismortier was counted among his friends. His most widely available work is his flute concerto opus 17, number 5. His works include “babioles” (baubles, trifles, toys) published about 1750. These are easy duets, described as being suitable for vielles (hurdy-gurdies) and musettes (bagpipes). The word “babiole” has not caught on in music circles, and later composers preferred the word Divertimento.
