|Pierre Baillot (1771 - 1842), list of works|
|An old-school violinist who was offended and pained by flashy Paganini-like stunts, Pierre Baillot divided his early life between musical studies and military training. After abandoning the latter, he received a professorship at the Paris Conservatoire; around the same time, he joined Napoleon's private orchestra. Later in life, Baillot toured Western Europe and Russia to great acclaim, receiving particular praise from Mendelssohn and Spohr for his sensitive performances of chamber music.|
