spent the rest of his life teaching composition; in 1818 he was appointed professor at the Conservatoire (Conservatoire de Paris). From about 1785 Reicha studied composition secretly, against his uncle's wishes, yet already by 1787 he composed and conducted his first symphony. In 1789 he entered the University of Bonn. Reicha was studying and worked as performer until 1794, when Bonn was attacked and captured by the French (France) forces. Reicha managed to escape to Hamburg, vowed never to perform again, and started earning his living by teaching harmony and composition, as well as the piano. He also occupied himself with composition, studied mathematics, philosophy and, significantly, methods of teaching composition. In 1799 Reicha moved to Paris, hoping to achieve success with his operas. These hopes were dashed, however: he could neither get his old librettos accepted, nor find suitable new ones, despite support from his friends and influential members of the aristocracy. In 1801 Reicha left Paris for Vienna.

Vienna

and 1801 he lived in Paris, trying to achieve recognition as an opera composer, without success. In 1801 he moved to Vienna, where he studied with Salieri (Antonio Salieri) and Albrechtsberger (Johann Georg Albrechtsberger) and produced his first important works. His life was once again affected by war in 1808, when he had to leave Vienna. Reicha settled in Paris, where he spent the rest of his life teaching composition; in 1818 he was appointed professor at the Conservatoire (Conservatoire de Paris). The wind quintets represent a more conservative trend in Reicha's oeuvre, however, especially when compared to his earlier work, namely the compositions of the Viennese (Vienna) period. Technical wizardry prevails in compositions that illustrate Reicha's theoretical treatise ''Practische Beispiele'' of 1803, where techniques such as bitonality and polyrhythm are explored in extremely difficult sight reading exercises. Demuth, 7 (171) ''36 fugues for piano (36 Fugues (Reicha))'', published in 1803, was conceived as an illustration of Reicha's ''neue Fugensystem'', a new system for composing fugues. Reicha suggested fugal answers could be placed on any scale degree (Degree (music)) (rather than the standard dominant (Dominant (music))) to widen the possibilities for modulation (Modulation (music)) and undermine the tonal (Tonality) stability of the fugue.
