Biographies

The composer, Charles Jean Baptist Soualle, a French musician, who studied clarinet at the Academy of Paris, gaining first prize in 1844, changed his name to Ali Ben Sou Alle after converting to Islam. He went to England in 1848, after a period as Director of Music in the Navy in Senegal and as clarinettist with the orchestra of the Opera Comique in Paris. He toured the world performing in many countries on the clarinet and tenor (turkophono) and soprano (turcoponini) turkophones. He made technical improvements and added keys to the turkophone, a bass clarinet like instrument, with a curved bell at the end and that produced a rich sonorous tone.Alle came to Australia in the 1850’s. The Illustrated Sydney news published a picture of Alle in his Turkish costume and gave information about his concerts on December 26, 28 and 29, 1854 at the Williams’ Hotel, Parramatta. The article continued information that Ale had performed before Her Majesty Queen Victoria and with great success in Paris and London, and had been awarded the First Council Medal by the Jury at the Great Exhibition. While in the colony of NSW, The Goulburn Herald advertised a concert by Alle at the Royal Hotel, Yass on Jan 18, 1855. His farewell concert in Goulburn was to include many of his own compositions of songs, airs and variations on popular songs, fantasias and improvisations based on opera themes, and English and Scottish airs.The Illustrated Sydney News provide an account of a special breakfast at the Goulburn Hotel to farewell the “distinguished musician” who was soon to leave for Windsor. Among the guests present was Captain Plunkett, Police magistrate and the celebrated violinist, Miska Hauser. Alle and Hauser were both performing in Bathurst in February 1855, Alle at the Prince of Wales Theatre and Hauser at the Royal Victoria Theatre. Reviews of his performances appeared in newspapers, with audiences marvelling at the new sounds and tone colours produced by the turkophones.The Goulburn waltz, with the dedication “A mes amis de Goulburn”, was most likely written by Alle in memory of his visit to Goulburn, in the colony of NSW. In England in 1856 Alle played before the Prince of Wales, presenting him with an album of music (self published in the early 1860’s in Paris), containing more than forty of his own compositions, bearing titles of places he had visited.Biography written and contributed by Christine Whitley.
