With Helga Schauerte, editor of the new Bärenreiter publication of the complete organ works, we commemorate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Leon Boëllmann (9/25/1862 – 10/11/1897), titulaire of the Cavaillé-Coll instrument at the Parisian church of Saint Vincent-de-Paul, a talented, memorable, yet short-lived contributor to the late-romantic French organ art.
