Stoltz

Jean-Baptiste   Stoltz    (1813-1874)   learned   his   craft   from   John   Abbey. He    became    foreman    at    Daublaine    and    Callinet ,    residing    at    this workshop for ten years. In   1845   the   Daublaine-Callinet   company   was   bought   by   Ducroquet, who   appointed   Barker   as   foreman.   Stolz   resigned   and   started   his own   workshop   in   Paris,   33,   avenue   de   Saxe,   in   1852   (Stoltz   et   Schaff, from    1865    onwards    Stolz).    Despite    the    strong    competition    from Cavaillé-Coll, Stoltz gradually conquered a considerable prestige. On   his   death   in   1874   two   of   sons,   Eugene   and   Edouard   (his   third son,    Jules-Albert,    became    a    famus    organist)    founded    a    company under   the   name   of   Stoltz   Frères   (brothers)   and   subsequently   built   a hundred   organs   in   France,   and   a   more   restricted   number   in   other countries,   including   Spain,   the   United   Kingdom,   Cuba,   Peru,   Greece, Philippines and Syria. Relatively    good    preserved    instruments    of    the    brothers    Stoltz    can    be found in Saint-Médard, Paris V and Sainte Marguerite, Paris XI.
