CASADESUS, Robert

--------------------

A multifaceted personality, Robert Casadesus (1899-1972) was not only a great master of the keyboard, but also a well-known educator, chamber musician, and composer. Born in Paris in a family of musicians and actors, Casadesus studied at the Paris Conservatoire, where, at the age of 14, he received a Premier Prix, where, at the age of 14, he received a Premier in piano, followed by the Grand Prix Diemer (Louis Diemer, one of Casadesus' teachers, was a pupil of Liszt). This marked the beginning of an illustrious career that spanned fifty years and brought him to three continents.

Casadesus, the composer, was often stimulated by Casadesus, the performer. Thus, the collaboration with his wife, pianist Gaby Casadesus, no doubt, gave an impetus to the creation of several works in the two-piano medium. His output was considerable and diverse, also including seven symphonies, several concertos for solo instruments with orchestra, works for solo piano, and vocal and chamber music.A multifaceted personality, Robert Casadesus (1899-1972) was not only a great master of the keyboard, but also a well-known educator, chamber musician, and composer.
