Jadin was born at Versailles, into a family of musicians. His first opera was staged at Versailles in 1788. In 1792, he became a musician in the National Guard. Known as a pianist, he taught at the Paris Conservatory. La Grande Bataille d’Austerliz surnommée la bataille des trois Empereurs, Trait historique arrangé pour le pianoforté par L. Jadin, Membre du Conservatoire de musique is a remarkable example of apparently unpublished program music written during the Napoleonic Wars to celebrate Napoleon’s victory at Austerlitz. Beethoven’s Battle Symphony is a well-known example written to celebrate Wellington’s victory at Vitoria in Spain (1812). Jadin’s piano music has descriptive captions in the score to inform the performer what various passages are intended to represent. Bound in an A. Egasse fils composition book of heavy laid, lined, blue music paper, green paper covers over paper boards, now scuffed, 34.5 cm x 25.5 cm. Internally fine.
