There are 4 Alexandre François Joseph Pezé (1768, Arras-1835, Paris), bassoons in the Hichwa-Rachor database. He flourished in Paris from a1809 to 1830 in the 3rd arrondissement where other wind instrument makers such as Prudent, Porthaux and Savary were located. The Pezé workshop specialized in clarinets, bassoons, and cabrettes. After the death of François Pezé, his son Louis continued until the firm was taken over by Nicolas Klemmer and by the 1850’s the workshop no longer made wind instruments, only pianos.
