L'Auteur [self-published]. Madame Boivin. Monsieur Le Clerc [1748], Paris - Fétis incorrectly states Pagin's first name as "André-Noël," still used in the catalogue of the Bibliothèque nationale, Paris.Pagin, a French violinist and composer, studied with Tartini in Paris. He made his début at the Concert Spirituel on December 8, 1747 with one of his own sonatas. "In 1748 Pagin published in Paris a set of six Sonates à violon seul et basse continue (it was probably one of these that he performed at his début in 1747). They show the influence of his teacher [Tartini], with a virtuoso use of trills and pedal points, extreme leaps in register, challenging chordal passages, a sophisticated and extensive use of articulation marks, and a range extending into the 7th position." Laurel Fay, Patrizio Barbieri, and Beverly Wilcox in Grove online"As evidenced by Carmontelle’s portrait and by a verse printed in the Mercure de France in 1758, Vachon was much admired by his contemporaries as a soloist and performer of chamber music. As a composer he also distinguished himself in chamber music, publishing sonatas, trios, and about 30 quartets in Paris and London. According to La Laurencie his virtuoso violin writing was inspired by Gaviniés, and his variety of bowing techniques by Tartini."
