Joseph-Henri Altès

Joseph-Henri Altès (1826-1895)[1] was a French flautist, composer and teacher.

In 1840, he won a place at the Conservatoire de Paris studying with the renowned flautist/composer of the time, Jean-Louis Tulou.

From 1848 to 1872, he was Principal Flute of the Orchestre de l’Opéra National de Paris. In 1868 he was appointed as a flute professor at the Paris Conservatoire teaching students such as Georges Barrère and Adolphe Hennebains.

His ‘Célèbre méthode complète de flûte’ remains a popular method in the flute repertoire. Housed at the Paris Conservatoire are forty of his compositions, including his fantasies on opera themes and six solos used for the annual Concours at the Paris Conservatoire.
