F. J. Mompour

typical cover



This firm in Bonn operated from circa 1835 until 1843. It was founded by Franz Joseph Mompour (1782-1842), organist at St Remigius in Bonn; in 1843, after his death, the firm was bought by Fürstner.

Mompour's catalog covered a wide range of musical genres, both vocal — solo songs, male voice choral songs, oratorios,sacred and secular songs; and instrumental — from large scale (symphonies by H. Neumann and Attern) to small chamber works for two violins, or trios for flute, violin and guitar. One unusual combination was a concertino for clarinet, bassoon and orchestra by Heinrich Neumann (Op.37).
