Galliard, Johann Ernst
Johann Ernst Galliard was a German composer recognized for his pantomimes. He used pantomimes to satirize Italian opera. His operas were not really popular, but the pantomimes were attended by people. There was less than one hour of production that had various effects. "Calypso and Telemachus" was Galliard's opera and was regarded by Handel although its performances were limited. Galliard worked much of his time in London (of 1706) and studied oboe and flute from Marechal, a member of the French orchestra in Celle.
