(1765 - 1838)

An important figure in the establishment of a French school of French horn playing, Duvernoy occupied a leading position as a performer in his own time, employed as a principal player at the Opéra in Paris. He was much admired by Napoleon and retained official favour under the latter’s immediate successors, until 1830.

French Horn Music

Duvernoy’s compositions are principally for his own instrument and include concertos and chamber music, in addition to an important Méthode pour le cor (‘Method for the Horn’).
