Introduction to the French Trumpet Stars


by Michel Laplace
Like most of the other European cduntries France began its
modern trumpet history under the German influence. It was in
October, 1826, that Spontini sent to Joseph David Buhl, virtuoso
from Amboise, a new German invention: a trumpet with two
valves. His nephew, Franqois Joseph Dauvernt?, gave a successful
concert with that instrument, then improved it alot. He is the same
DauvernC of the Paris Opera, who became the first trumpet
teacher at the Paris Conservatory when Luigi Cherubini opened a
class for that instrument in 1833. Again, for his “methode pour la

We can pass over the other teachers of the Paris Conservatory
until 1925 (Maury, Cerclier, A. Petit). From 1925 to 1957 the
greatest French teacher was Eugene Foveau. “He had a beautiful

letter l-76) Mostly a cornet player, he succeeded A. Petit as cornet
teacher. At the same time, his powerful colleague at the Paris
Opera, Pierre Vignal, was named trumpet teacher. Foveau was a
stylist, being the originator of the pretty French sound of the late
1950’s. Happily for us? Foveau recorded some 78’s. His pupil,
Raymond Sabarich, took most of the soloist jobs and succeeded G. Berton, R. Rideau, J-C. Elisas,M. Lamarche (Conservatoire de Tours, 1970)
