Biography

Country Of origin: France

A horn player from France who was the winner of the first "premier prix" for a horn player. Dauprat traveled with military bands before completing his studies at the National Institute of Music (which had by this time become the Conservatoire). As an assistant professor at the Conservatoire, Dauprat became a full professor in 1816 until 1842. During these years he also played in the "courts" of Napoleon, Louis XVIII, Charles X and Louis-Phillipe. After these positions Dauprat went into semi-retirement in Egypt until shortly before his death. He concentrated on teaching and wrote treatises to that effect. This corpus of studies conveyed detailed methods and performance instructions. Dauprat composed five horn concertos and unpublished works for symphonic presentation among other works. ~ Keith Johnson~ Rovi
