Jeanne-Marie Darré

Jeanne-Marie Darré was born in Givet, France on July 30, 1905. She studied with Philipp and made her Paris debut in 1920. Following this performance, Darré toured throughout Europe. In 1958, she became a professor of piano at the Paris Conservatory. For many summers, Darré taught a well-attended master class in the French city of Nice. Her first American concerts took place in 1962. Darré was particularly esteemed for her performances of Chopin, Liszt and Saint-Saëns. She died in 1999.
