Louis Moyse

L. Moyse (1912-2007) was a renowned French flute player and composer. His father, Marcel Moyse, was a highly influential French flautist and co-founder of the Vermont Marlboro Music Festival. Under the guidance of his father and Philippe Gaubert, Louis began his flute studies.

Louis Moyse’s musical career flourished as he became a member of the successful Moyse Trio, alongside his father on flute and his former wife, Blanche Honegger Moyse, on violin. Throughout his life, he taught numerous talented flautists worldwide, sharing his expertise and nurturing their talents. He held teaching positions at Marlboro College, Boston University, and the University of Toronto, leaving a lasting impact on generations of flute players.

In addition to his teaching, Louis Moyse dedicated himself to composing flute music. His compositions have gained worldwide recognition and have been published by prestigious music publishers such as G. Schirmer, Southern Music, Theodore Presser, McGinnis & Marx, E. Henry David Music Publishers, Leduc (France), and Zen-On (Japan). His vast contributions to flute music have solidified his reputation as one of the most prolific composers in the field.

Louis Moyse’s legacy extends beyond his compositions and teachings. He and his wife, Janet White Moyse, embarked on tours around the world and the United States, combining their musical talents. They settled in Montpelier, Vermont, for the last nine years of his life. Despite his busy schedule, Louis Moyse maintained a connection to his hometown, St.-Amour, France, where he continued to conduct master classes and perform concerts until 2004.
