Youra Guller was born in Paris in 1895. A child of Russian-Romanian parentage, Guller began piano studies at the age of 5. Guller performed in recitals and then enrolled at the Paris Conservatory at the age of 9. It was there that she worked with Philipp. Around World War II, a period of illness forced her to slow down. By the 1960s, Guller had resumed performing, making her New York debut in 1971. Guller died in 1980.

(We cannot and do not provide information about pianos or the piano industry.) IPAM is open to visitors by appointment between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. (Eastern Time), Mondays through Fridays, with rare exceptions.
