Georges Gillet


Georges-Vital-Victor Gillet (1854–1920) was a noted French oboist, composer and teacher at the Paris Conservatory. In addition to premiering the oboe works of prominent French composers of the 19th century including Émile Paladilhe, Charles-Édouard Lefebvre and Clémence de Grandval among others, he was the teacher of Marcel Tabuteau. Gillet assisted in the development of the plateau-system Lorée oboe (Systeme 6 bis) and composed a series of oboe études for that instrument that are still in use today.
