Notes

Charles Dancla was the most prominent member of a family of musicians and a virtuoso violinist, composer and teacher. In 1828, he was admitted to the Paris Conservatory of Music, where he won the first prize in 1833. At the Conservatory, he studied violin with Paul Guérin and Pierre Baillot.

Dancla played solo violin with the orchestra of the théâtre Royal de l'Opera Comique and with the Société des Concerts. In ca. 1860, he was appointed professor of violin at the Paris Conservatory and retired from that post in 1892. He wrote 14 string quartets intended for professional or amateur players (opp. 5, 7 ,18, 41, 48, 56, 80, 87, 101, 113, 125, 142, 160, and 195a) and three easy string quartets (op. 208).

The library's copy includes a list of subscribers that names amateur and distinguished musicians such as: the composers [Hector] Berlioz, [Luigi] Cherubini, [Giacomo Meyerbeer], the violinist [Jean-Delphin] Alard, and pianist [Pierre] Zimmermann, among others.
