Charles-Simon Catel (10 July 1773--29 November 1830) was born at L'Aigle, Normandy, France. From an early age he showed musical talent, and began his formal studies at the age of 11 with the Italian composer, Antonio Sacchini
Catel's quartets for clarinet, violin, viola and cello date from 1796 to 1799. His other chamber musical works include woodwind quartets, string quintets and sonatas for piano. His larger works include a heroic ballet and many operatic successes.
Elsie's Parker's woodwind playing (clarinet/flute/tenor sax) is influenced by works of French composer Michel Legrand, and Argentinian tenor saxophonist/composer Gato Barbieri.
Kristin Ahlstrom, Shannon Williams and Bjorn Ranheim are all esteemed major orchestra string players.
