Felix Boisson (6.6.1846 in Ecouen, France – 5.31.1921 in Algiers, Algeria) belongs to that generation of musicians (see L. Conor, A. Corbin, L. Pillevestre…) who were expected to 'churn out' a spate of Quadrilles, Waltzes, Polkas, Mazurkas, Pas redoubles, Boleros etc. for the many balls and parties so popular at the time.
His vast output is often characterised by humorous or descriptive titles: Bayonet, Croquette, Chirpy, Chatterbox…
Most pieces were adapted to the circumstances and could be performed with orchestra, piano or military bands. Solo piano or orchestral arrangements were also made.
