A French violinist and composer, Gaviniés was "Leclair's successor as leader of the French violin school... The early 1760s were perhaps the apex of Gaviniés’s career. He published three sets of sonatas for violin and basso continuo, one set for two violins and six concertos. Several symphonies were performed at the Concert Spirituel, where he conducted the orchestra from his position as leader. In the winter of 1763–4, the Mozart family attended some of his concerts."
