Louis-Gabriel Guillemain

A profile of the 18thC French violinist and composer Louis-Gabriel Guillemain, who served King Louis XV, becoming one of the most highly paid musicians at court. His private life was a troubled one, though - a heavy drinker and often in debt, it's thought that he committed suicide at the age of 65.
