Presentation

Hyacinthe Jadin was born at Versailles in I776. His father, an Ordinaire de la musique in the royal household, probably supervised his musical education. By 1792, just 16 years old, he joined his older brother Louis-Emmanuel as an accompanist at the Feydeau theatre in Paris. In 1795, at the age of 19, and with a well-established reputation as a pianist, he was appointed professor at the newly founded Conservatoire. He composed many sonatas and three concertos for the piano. Ill health sent him back to Versailles in 1799 and within a year he had died of tuberculosis. Nevertheless, Jadin’s short working life produced a wealth of music, music of a quality which now earns him a place alongside more established composers.

The 12 string quartets Jadin published between 1795 and 1798 are written in a refined style and largely follow the classical Viennese formula, then almost unknown in French musical circles. Jadin’s quartets exemplify the best qualities of his writing: a concentrated, expressive and dramatic language, characterised by a rich harmonic palette, much in advance of its time. Musically, these are serious and demanding works. Technically, performance difficulties are few.

After a brief summary of the life and career of the composer, Philippe Oboussier sets out the framework for the development of the French string quartet from 1770 -1790. He highlights Jadin’s contribution and his originality which firmly place him within the Viennese style of Haydn and Mozart, its most famous exponents. A comparative study of Mozart’s ‘Dissonance’ quartet in C (KV 465) with Jadin’s fine Quartet op. 2 no. 1 in E flat highlights the similarities and influences which suggest reverence to the master, just as Jadin had paid to Haydn in his first set of quartets. Illustrated with facsimiles of original material, the introduction (in French and English) is followed by the music (in score) of the 12 quartets, followed by comprehensive notes and a critical commentary.
Each quartet is available in separate parts (and score) for performers.

Philippe Oboussier studied at King’s College, Cambridge and worked variously within music education for 25 years. In the 1970s he edited and performed Lalande’s grands motets and discovered unknown petits motets by François Couperin. An exploration of late 18th century French chamber music led him to the then unknown quartets of Hyacinthe Jadin. These he unveiled to an astonished French public at the 1989 Lyon bicentenaire conference. They are the subject of his doctorate (Ph.D. Exeter, 2005).
