Charles de Lusse

(fl. 1750)

French composer and flutist. Gerber places him at the Opéracomique around 1760, but neither this nor any connection to the Delusse family of instrurnent makers can be authenticated. Works include collections of flute sonatas and trios published during the 1750s, along with the comic opera L'amant statue(1759), and songs and romances; in addition, he contributed to Diderot's Dictionnaireand produced a treatise L'Art de la flûte traversière(1760) containing twenty caprices also usable as cadenzas for concertos.
