A French flautist, bassoonist, composer and teacher, "Devienne's compositions did much to raise the musical level of works written for wind instruments in France in the late 18th century... The texture of Devienne's compositions is primarily that of a single melodic line with a subordinate accompaniment. The melodies are elegant and graceful, and the instrumental works are frequently interspersed with sections written to display the performer's technique." William Montgomery in Grove Music Online.
