"Marseillaise" (La Marseillaise) - anthem of the French Republic, was created during the Great French Revolution. The first part of the Marseillaise was named "Military March of the Rhine Army." The March was written on the night of April 25, 1792, by a military engineer, poet and composer Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle (1760-1836), a few days after the declaration of war by the revolutionary France to "The King of Bohemia and Hungary". Rouget de Lille first sang it in the house of his friend Baron Philippe Frédéric de Dietrich. The Marseilles Volunteer Battalion marched into Paris with this song on July 30, 1792. November 24, 1793 the Convention chooses "Marseillaise" as the national anthem of France. Philip Frederick Dietrich (1748-1793), a scientist and politician was convicted by a "revolutionary" court and guillotined in Paris on December 29, 1793. After the events of 1848, when the revolutionary wave swept across Europe, the "Marseillaise," embodying the struggle against tyranny and the pursuit of freedom, became the song of the revolutionaries of the entire world. It sounded on various battlefields and during the Paris Commune in 1871. It was often referred to in works of art. MANUFACTURE DE LIMONAIRES MARC FOURNIER was created by Marc Fournier in 1979 for the production of mechanical musical instruments - large fair organs and exists up to the present day. Christian Fournier has been managing the company since January 01, 2000. The trade mark - LIMONAIRES originated from the surname of the Limonaires brothers, who had been producing them since 1850. The Limonaires’ organs had a good reputation and were in demand until the end of the 1930s.
