Jacques Pierre Joseph Rode (February 16, 1774 – November 25, 1830) was a French violinist and composer.
In all, Pierre Rode composed 13 violin concertos and many other works for violin, including at least four Quatuor brillant for violin and string trio. Although Rode’s violin concertos have some significance in the development of the Romantic concerto, they are nowadays rarely performed, and his major contribution to music must be seen in his influence to younger violinists, such as Louis Spohr, who adopted his style and developed it further. He turned out to be unsuccessful for some time and Spohr found that his skill had deteriorated. He refused to touch the violin for quite a while.
