Composer and virtuoso flautist, Albert Franz Doppler (1821-1883) was born in Poland. He wrote an array of ballet and operatic works but was best known for his flute music.
In 1828, Franz Doppler began studying the flute with his father, Joseph Doppler and later formed a flute duo with his younger brother Karl. The Doppler brothers proceeded to tour Europe as a flute duo for many years, performing a number of their own arrangements which proved popular with audiences. Both brothers became members of the Orchestra of the German Theatre, Budapest.
Alongside their touring, they also founded the Hungarian Philharmonic Orchestra. Franz Doppler was the Principal flautist at the opera in Budapest and deputy conductor. He then became chief conductor of the Vienna Court Opera as well as Professor of Flute and the Vienna Conservatoire.
Franz Doppler composed an array of popular virtuosic pieces for flute including flute duets, concertos and showpieces. Many of his works include Russian and Hungarian elements as well as operatic themes.
Jean-Pierre Rampal (1922-2000) renowned French flautist toured internationally, recorded a vast array of works involving the flute and in later years, took up conducting.
Rampal won a place to study at the Paris Conservatoire and later founded the French Wind Quintet before becoming Principal Flute of the Paris Opéra (1956–62). In 1968 he took up the post of Flute Professor at the Paris Conservatoire.
He enhanced the status of the flute as a concert instrument through his vast number of recordings from Baroque masterpieces to jazz. He was particularly known for his authentic interpretations of 18th Century music and for his editing skills with the music of the Baroque period.
Rampal’s autobiography, ‘Music, My Love’, was published in 1989.
