Monique de la Bruchollerie (1915 - 1972)

Through her mother’s family, Bruchollerie was a descendant of French composer François Adrien Boïeldieu and her father was a cousin of André Messager. Bruchollerie studied as a child with Isidor Philipp, who was a family friend. Under his guidance at the age of thirteen she won a premier prix at the Paris Conservatoire and was awarded the Pagès Prize, an honour given every five years to the best premier prix winner. For this prestigious prize Bruchollerie played Beethoven’s Piano Sonata in A flat Op. 110, Schumann’s Carnaval Op. 9, Chopin’s Ballade No. 4 in F minor Op. 52 and a mazurka from Op. 50, Fauré’s Nocturne No. 7 and Balakirev’s Islamey.

She continued her studies in Paris with Alfred Cortot, and in Vienna with Liszt pupil Emil von Sauer. After gaining third prize at the Vienna Competition, Bruchollerie entered the Chopin Competition of 1937, where Yakov Zak won the first prize, and was placed seventh (Witold Malcuzyński was third). The following year she gained tenth place at the Ysaÿe Competition in Brussels, where she also met Emil Gilels with whom she remained friends. As early as 1946 Bruchollerie was invited to Poland with the National Polish Philharmonic Orchestra and returned many times during the 1950s. In 1948 she gave a highly-praised concert at the Salle Pleyel, where she played three piano concertos with Charles Munch and the Société des Concerts du Conservatoire.
