He made a short but important trip to Milan, and was for a time a violinist in the Lyons Opera. He held organ posts in Avignon, Clermont and Dijon and visited Paris from until - during which time he held two organ posts, was offered a third, and published his first book of harpsichord pieces. About he moved to Lyons, where he contributed grands motets to the Lyons Concert In he settled permanently in Paris. But while his music - harpsichord pieces, cantatas and music for the theaters - was also much admired, he was unable to win an organ post in Paris.

He took on pupils, among them the talented Marie-Louise Mangeot, who became his wife in In he competed unsuccessfully with Daquin for the organ post at St Paul, bringing to a close his career as a church organist. Rameau was to be embroiled for the rest of his life in controversies concerning his music and writings. His early operas, of which the first was produced in his 50th year, provoked a lengthy dispute between the old guard Lullistes and the forward-looking Ramistes. Hippolyte et Aricie was a stunning success, exciting strong passions because of the emphasis placed on music rather than plot.

He was to write a further large number of successful musical dramas. During this period Rameau found a pleasant haven at the home of the financier La Poupliniere, whom he served as maitre de musique from about until Rameau and his family lodged at his various residences and belonged to the stimulating circle of writers, artists and musicians gathered around La Poupliniere.

The rich musical resources - singers, players and dancers - of Paris were augmented by virtuoso clarinettists and horn players brought in from Germany and Bohemia, providing Rameau with a private forum. Rameau gained an important foothold at the Royal Court during the s. By now, his place at Versailles secure, his works well received in Paris and in the provinces, his theories acclaimed by learned societies, Rameau had reached the height of his career.

From until his death in Rameau composed less music and wrote more theoretical treatises. His theories of harmony still form the basis of the modern study of tonal harmony. A number of other memorial services were also held in Paris and in the provinces.

Rameau appeared revolutionary to the Lullyistes, disturbed by complex harmony of his music; and reactionary to the "philosophes," who only paid attention to its content and who either would not or could not listen to the sound it made. The incomprehension he received from his contemporaries stopped Rameau from repeating such daring experiments as the second Trio des Parques in Hippolyte et Aricie, which he was forced to remove after a handful of performances because the singers had been either unable or unwilling to render it correctly.
