JEAN-FRANCOIS DANDRIEU  

(1681 - 1738)

Organist from 1705 at the church of St Merry in Paris, the French composer and harpsichordist Jean-François Dandrieu, member of a musical family, was in 1721 appointed an organist of the royal chapel. Earlier he perhaps deputised for his uncle Pierre Dandrieu, priest and organist at St Bartélemy, where Jean-François was later buried.

Keyboard Music

Dandrieu’s collections of keyboard works seem to include compositions by his uncle, which he revised to accord with contemporary taste. Including works for both harpsichord and organ, he followed the practice of providing short pieces with appropriate titles to indicate the character of the music.
