The music of the song "LE PLUS BEAU TANGO DU MONDE" (The most beautiful tango) to the words of René Sarvil from the operetta Henry Alibert "Un de la Canebière" was written by the French composer Vincent Scotto (21.04.1874-15.11.1952) in 1935. 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.
