|Jean-Philippe Rameau (1683-1764), list of works|
|The only major composer in history to gain fame as a musical theorist before establishing himself as a composer, Jean-Philippe Rameau is credited with establishing the theoretical concepts behind tonal harmony in his Treatise on Harmony Reduced to Its Natural Principles. A composer of operas (Castor et Pollux) and chamber pieces alike, Rameau was seen as something of a rival to Jean-Baptiste Lully.|
