Rodolphe Kreutzer is best known as a violinist-composer. He was an integral part of the first generation of the newly formed Paris Conservatoire in the 1790s, and was instrumental in forming the violin pedagogy of the new revolutionary institution, teaching until 1826, and a member of the Conservatoire’s council from 1825 to 1830.
Though tending toward romanticism in some ways, his music displays a classical restraint and clarity of expression. His legacy also includes chamber music and music for the theatre, including some works of more than historical interest.
