LEON BOELLMANN (1862 - 1897)
The name of Léon Boëllmann is known to all organists above all because of his brilliant Toccata for the instrument, the final movement of a Suite gothique. Born in Alsace in 1862, he served as organist at the church of St Vincent-de-Paul in Paris from 1881 until his early death in 1897.
In addition to the Toccata from the Suite gothique, Op 25, the Douze Pièces (Twelve Pieces), Op 16, and Heures mystiques, Opp 29 & 30, are well enough known.
