Framery, Nicolas Étienne
Framery, Nicolas Étienne, French composer, writer on music, and poet; b. Rouen, March 25, 1745; d. Paris, Nov. 26, 1810. He composed the text and music for the comic opera La Sorcière par hasard (1768); its performance at Villeroy earned him the position of superintendent of music with the Count of Artois. The opera was performed at the Comédie- Italienne (Paris, Sept. 3, 1783), but suffered a fiasco because of the antagonism against Italian opera generated by the adherents of Gluck. He also wrote librettos for Sacchini, Salieri, Paisiello, Anfossi, and other Italian composers; ed. the Journal de Musique (1770–78) and Calendrier Musical Universel (1788–89) in Paris. He compiled, together with Ginguene and Feytou, the musical part of vol. I of Encyclopedic methodique (1791; vol. II by Momigny, 1818); besides smaller studies, he wrote De la necessite du rythme et de la cesure dans les hymnes ou odes destinees a la musique (1796); tr. into French Azopardi’s Musico prattico, as Le Musiden pratique (2 vols., 1786).

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
