About Henri-Joseph Rigel
Henri-Joseph Rigel (9 February 1741— 2 May 1799) was a German-born composer of the Classical era who spent most of his working life in France He was the son of Georg Caspar Riegel, an intendant (from about 1725 to his death in 1754) for Prince Löwenstein. After Georg’s death his widow Maria Anna petitioned the prince for the support of her under-aged children, and it is probable that he furthered the musical education of her sons. In 1767 the name Riegel appeared for the first time in the Breitkopf Catalogue, with incipits for seven symphonies and one violin concerto
