This unknown XVIII century composer with a Flemish sounding name is presented on the title page as a violin teacher from Toulouse, France. The score was placed in first position in a period bound volume with works by Boccherini, Haydn, Gossec, Beck, Filtz, Cannabich. The signature of the composer, together with a couple of his inked corrections, is apposed to the bottom of the last page of the Violin 1 and 2 parts which would tend to point at a local purchase. This volume was found in the music library of a property not far from Toulouse (see uploader's main page). Unfortunately, the viola and bass volumes were found to be missing.

"basso" might just mean cello, not necessarily figured bass; basso often did mean this during publications in the Classical era, and can't be assumed to place this composer in the Baroque era, absent the cello-or-continuo part evidence must be found elsewhere just which it is. The advertisement lists works that were published (according to Worldcat) ca.1763 (e.g. the later Holzbauer periodical-symphonies) and perhaps later still... - Schissel
- agreed, all the more so as all the other pieces in the other, complete, volumes of this late 18th century collection have regular cello parts, and not figured bass.
