Monique de la Bruchollerie


Until a fateful automobile accident in Romania 1966 impaired her performing abilities, Monique de la Bruchollerie (1915-1972) occupied a powerful position in the history of French piano music. A pupil of Isidor Philipp, she went on to study with Alfred Cortot, Emil von Sauer, and Raoul von Koczalski. The live Chartres recital revived by meloclassic for Radiodiffusion-Television Francaise recreates two works – the Schumann and the Beethoven – that Brucholllerie performed at age 13 when she won the Premier Prix at the Paris Conservatory. These rare live broadcast recordings make their first appearance on CD.
