Synopsis

Album Description
Live recordings 1951-1963 featuring Monique de La Bruchollerie, a great pianist little remembered today. Born in Paris to a family of musicians including Boildieu and Messager among her ancestors, she graduated with the Premier Prix from the Paris Conservatory and a few years later became the first French winner of the Chopin Competition in Warsaw. She became a close friend of Emil Gilels and a protégé of Charles Munch, who launched her career after World War II. She played under the greatest conductors, such as Celibidache, Jochum, and Karajan, but in 1966 a tragic car accident incapacitated her left hand. She died in another accident six years later. Because she did not like rigid ideas and she favored the creativity of the moment, Bruchollerie was always reticent about making recordings, making these documents all the more precious.
