Performance Notes:
      Andre Ernest Modeste Gretry (1741-1813) was born in Liege and studied in Rome at the College de Liege, a school founded for natives of Liege. He taught singing at Geneva in 1766 and arrived in Paris in 1767. Gretry, called “the Moliere of music”, founded the school of French opera-comique (comic opera). He began writing operas in Paris from 1768 and continued producing operas one after the other, even through the years of the French Revolution. Gretry's operas were known for their melodies and dramatic expression.
      His early works included instrumental music: six small symphonies, a Requiem, motets, church music, a flute concerto, and flute and piano sonatas. Russell S. Howland's arrangement of Tambourin by Gretry originally was written for Les Flutes Enchantees and included bass clarinet, string bass, and an optional harp part. Tambourin is the first movement from the Ballet Suite.
