Henri Lefebvre was a prize student of Cyrille Rose. Rose gave Lefebvre
his Buffet horns and Lefebvre gave those same horns to Bonade. Lefebvre
never taught at the Conservatoire in Paris but was considered to be THE
teacher in Paris at the time Bonade was a young student. And, Rose was a
student of Klose -
