François-Adrien Boieldieu numbers among the most important exponents of the
opéra comique of the French imperial era and the subsequent restoration.
With La dame blanche (1825) he even produced one of the internationally
most successful works of this genre; it served as a model example for other
composers and played a significant role in the further development of the
opéra comique. François Boieldieu received his early training in music in
particular from Charles Broches, the organist at the Rouen Cathedral. In
1796 he went to Paris, where he met Cherubini. From 1803 to 1811 he was the
court music director in St. Petersburg, and in 1817 he became a professor
of composition at the Paris Conservatory. In the overtures of his opéras
comiques Boieldieu usually anticipates thematic material from the
particular opera. As a result, the overture not only prepares the listener
for the atmosphere and tone color of the particular opéra comique but also
provides for a recognition effect when the themes familiar from the
overture reappear in a later phase of the stage action. The great wealth of
melodic invention and the pronounced melodic cantability particularly
characteristic of Boieldieu’s music and the Piano Concerto heard here
(premiere: 1792 in Rouen) inspired his contemporaries to call him »the
French Mozart.«
