'''Jean-Joseph de Mondonville''' (25 December 1711 (baptised) - 8 October 1772), also known as '''Jean-Joseph Cassanéa de Mondonville''', was a French violinist and composer. He was a younger contemporary of Jean-Philippe Rameau and enjoyed great success in his day. Pierre-Louis Daquin (son of the composer Louis-Claude Daquin) claimed: "If I couldn't be Rameau, there's no one I would rather be than Mondonville".Quoted in the booklet to ''Titon et l'Aurore''
