1661, Sep 21680s-17271733, May 18
a German Baroque organist and composer. He is notable for his development of the chorale partita and for his influence on the young J. S. Bach. Böhm is mainly known for his compositions for organ and harpsichord (primarily preludes, fugues, and partitas). Many of his works were designed with flexibility of instrument in mind: a particular piece could be played on the organ, the harpsichord, or the clavichord, depending on the situation in which the performer found himself. Böhm's music is notable for its use of the stylus phantasticus, a style of playing based on improvisation.
