He lived in Paris between 1825 and 1845, where he worked as a concert pianist. In 1845 he moved to Baden-Badenmarker where he taught piano until his death.

Among his many musical works, he was involved with the composition in 1837 of Hexaméron (six composers contributed, and the third variation on Bellini's theme is by Pixis).
