Harpist and composer; son of a harp manufacturer. Born in Paris, where, in 1816, he was appointed Court harpist, and nine years after became professor of the harp at the Paris Conservatory. In 1798 he made a concert tour in Germany, meeting with great success. His best known compositions were for the harp, including trios, duos, sonatas, fastasias, etc. Other of his works were quartets for harp, violin, piano and violoncello, trios for harp and various instruments; and duos for harp and violin or flute. When his father died he, with his brother Henry, succeeded to the management of the harp factory.
