Jean-Joseph Mouret

Birth / Death Dates

Mouret was a French composer whose dramatic works made him one of the leading exponents of Baroque music n his country. Even though most of his works are no longer performed, Mouret's name survives today thanks to the popularity of the Fanfare Rondeau from his Suite of Symphonies for brass, strings and timpani No. 1 which has been adopted as the signature tune of the PBS program "Masterpiece" (TV series) and is a popular musical choice in many modern weddings and other celebrations..
