Ignaz Pleyel, composer, music publisher and piano manufacturer, was born on June 18, 1757 in Ruppersthal, Austria and died on November 14, 1831 in Paris, France. He composed a great variety of music, more than 40 Symphonies, a very large number of String Quintets and String Quartets, 8 Flute Quartets (for Flute, Violin, Viola and Cello), numerous Trios and Duos for a variety of instruments.
Rita Benton (born 1918) published Ignace Pleyel. A Thematic Catalogue of His Compositions (1977) which assigns each of Pleyel’s works a B(enton) number.
Many of Pleyel’s compositions, including his Concertos, were often for several alternate instruments. Concerto in C Major (B106), composed in 1797, was for Solo Flute or Clarinet or Cello; Concerto in D Major (B105), composed in 1790, was for Solo Viola or Cello.
During the French Revolution (1789), Pleyel moved to London; this was the same period when Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809), Pleyel’s former teacher, was also giving concerts in London. When Pleyel returned to France in 1792, he immediately composed a pro-Revolutionary hymn La revolution du 10 août 1792 ou Le tocsin allégorique (The Revolution of August 10, 1792, or The Allegorical Alarm), to remain in the good graces of the revolutionary authorities.
