Chabanon Born on the island of Santo Domingo in 1730, he began his studies at the Collège Louis-Legrand in Paris at the age of seven. Professional violinist, playwright, poet, friend of Voltaire, connoisseur of Rameau, he frequented the Salons of the upper bourgeoisie or finance allowing him, like the Encyclopaedists and philosophers, to develop a precious network of relations. However, it was with his beloved younger brother, Maugris, with whom he shared his passion for literature, poetry and music. Their many special interviews lead them to share the fruits of their readings, to debate their opinions, to criticise and to complete together their writing work.
