I am interested in researching the organ music of Claire Delbos, a French violinist, composer, and the first wife of Olivier Messiaen. She was not an organist herself and she suffered from mental health problems, so many aspects of her personal life and music remains shrouded in obscurity. By learning, analyzing, and performing this music, I hope to find similarities and differences between Delbos’s music and contemporaneous organ music by her husband.
