    Abstract:
    The repertoire of the great composers and performers for the flute in France during the first half-century of the Conservatoire (1800-1850) remains almost unknown and largely inaccessible, if not entirely lost. Almost none of it has been republished in modern editions since the nineteenth century, although some is now beginning to be digitized thanks to programs such as Gallica, at the National Library of France, and due to this lack of editions, it is similarly unavailable on recordings. It is musically rewarding and technically challenging, and its oblivion is not due to questions of quality, but rather to laziness on the parts of both performing flutist and music historians. One of the major figures in this period was Jean Rémusat (1815-1880), who, remarkably, closed his career in China after emigrating to Shanghai from Paris. A previous article discussed the surviving biographical information, and provided Rémusat with a tentative works list
