Jean-Fery Rebel (1666-1747) was a violin and composition pupil of Jean-Baptiste Lully and held a variety of posts over the course of his life.  In addition of his forty years of involvement with the Académie Royale de Musique in various capacities, he was an instrumentalist at the Opéra, a member of the elite 24 Violons du Roi, and a musician of the royal chapel.  In 1718 his brother-in-law Michel-Richard de Lalande retired and Rebel obtained his post as master of the king's chamber music. Rebel was primarily an instrumental composer.  He was part of the first group of French composers to write sonatas, of which he published several, but he was most successful as a composer of dance music. He wrote dance suites and in particular produced innovative music for several choreographed symphonies.
