Élisabeth de Haulteterre (Hotteterre) (fl. 1737–1768) was a French composer and violinist. Despite the similarity of the name, she did not come from La Couture, the home of the Hotteterre family including Jacques Martin Hotteterre and is probably not related.

She was known as a concert violinist, playing Jean-Marie Leclair's sonatas at the Concert Spirituel in 1737. Her married name was Levésque.[1]

Works[edit]

Her concertos and sonatas for violin have been lost. Selected work include:

  • Requil de chansons for harpsichord
  • Deuxieme recueil d'airs choisis, with accompaniments for the harp
  • Premier livre de sonates for violin and continuo, 1740[2]
