Jean Hotteterre (died 1720) was a composer and musician of the Hotteterre family in the court of Louis XIV of France. He and his brothers Jacques-Martin and Nicolas made many enhancements to the hautbois, creating an "indoor" version similar to the shawm.[1] Jean and Michel Philidore created the oboe.
