Otto Barblan, (b S-chanf, March 22, 1860; d Geneva, Dec 19, 1943).
Swiss organist and composer. From 1878 to 1885 he studied the organ, the piano and composition at Stuttgart Conservatory. In 1885 he went to Chur as a music teacher, and in 1887 became organist of St Peter’s Cathedral in Geneva, where he stayed until 1942; from 1892 he also taught the organ and composition. As conductor of the Société de Chant Sacré (1892–1938) he introduced to Geneva important works by Bach, Beethoven, Handel, Franck and many other composers. Together with Ernest Ansermet, Barblan had a decisive influence on the musical life of Geneva.
He composed in a late Romantic neo-Baroque style, with particular success in his works for organ and choir for patriotic occasions, notably the Chaconne über B–A–C–H (1901), Fantasie (1907) and Toccata (1911) for organ, and Calvenfeier (...
