The details (from wikipedia)


Jean-Baptiste Janson (9 March 1742 – 2 September 1803) was a French cellist and composer of the classical period.


Jean-Baptiste Janson was a pupil of Martin Berteau. At age thirteen he played at the Concert Spirituel of Paris and was musician of Louis François, Prince of Conti. He traveled abroad and returned to Paris only after Jean-Pierre Duport left for Berlin in 1773. "Surintendant de la musique de Monsieur" circa 1786, he became a bass teacher at the founding of the Conservatoire de Paris on 3 August 1795. He retired in 1802.
