This treatise examines the legacy of French horn player, Jean Devémy, who taught at the Paris Conservatory from 1967 to 1969. Thirty-one pieces for horn by twenty-six composers were used during those years in the Concours de Prix, an annual competition for students. Many of these pieces have been forgotten and deserve to be revived. The first chapter of the treatise contains an introduction explaining the significance of the treatise. Additionally, it includes information about the history of the horn in France and the Paris Conservatory Concours de Prix. The second chapter presents biographical information for Jean Devémy, and the third chapter examines his teaching. The fourth chapter begins with an overview of the thirty-one pieces written for Devémy's classes and the twenty-six composers who wrote them. It is followed by smaller sections about each piece and its composer. The two appendices attached to this document are a discography of Jean Devémy's recordings and a chronological list of the morceaux de concours examined in this document, along with their respective ranges.
