Jacques Loeillet

Jacques Loeillet (1685-1748), younger sibling of Jean-Baptiste Loeillet of London, was an oboist and composer. Created in Ghent, he offered the Elector of Bavaria (who was simply residing in holland) as an oboist. In 1726, when the Elector came back to Munich, Loeillet adopted him. He later on offered Louis XV at Versailles, as hautbois de la chambre du roi. In 1746, toward the finish of his existence, Loeillet came back to Ghent. His functions consist of two concertos for oboe and strings, six trio sonatas, and six sonatas for violin (or flute) and continuo.
