F. J. Mompour

typical cover



This firm in Bonn, a small town on the Rhine with two claims to fame- as Beethoven's birthplace in 1770, and as the seat of the West German government from 1949 until 1999-, operated from or before 1835 until 1843, when it was bought by Furstner.

In about 100 items in that period Mompour's catalog covered nearly every conceivable musical genre, both vocal- solo songs, male voice choral songs, oratorios, songs sacred and secular-, and instrumental works- from large scale (symphonies by H. Neumann and Attern) to small chamber works for 2 violins, or flute violin and guitar trios. One very rare combination was a concertino for clarinet bassoon and orchestra by Heinrich Neumann (Op.37).

Apparently, the firm was founded by the organist and composer Franz-Josef Mompour (1782-1842) who was organist at Saint Rémi in Bonn.
