Marguerite Long by Cecilia Dunoyer

Book Description

"Cecilia Dunoyer has written a thoughtful and carefully researched work. Not only is her book crammed with information on French music, performers, and composers, it also is highly readable."-Piano & Keyboard "Cecilia Dunoyer's new book presents an engaging portrait of the woman once esteemed as the grande dame of French music." -Notes "It is a fascinating story from beginning to end..." -American Music Teacher "Dunoyer's thorough, accurate, well-written biography is the first of this important artist and, as such, worthy of many a music library's attention." -Booklist Marguerite Long, the most important French woman pianist of our century, left her stamp on a whole epoch of musical life in Paris. Long was a virtuoso performer-working closely with Debussy, Faure, and Ravel-and a tireless and demanding pedagogue. With violinist Jacques Thibaud, she founded a prestigious international competition that continues to launch the careers of young musicians. Illustrated.
