Gisele Kuhn (1910 - 1996)

Gisele Kuhn was born in 1910. In the 1930s she joined Jeune France (founded by Lesur, Jolivet, Messiaen and Baudrier) and participated in cutting-edge contemporary music performances. She joined the Schola Cantorum faculty, where she taught piano performance until 1980. A respected teacher and performer, she received many honours, including the Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur, the Chevalier des Palmes Académiques, and the Médaille de Vermeil de la Ville de Paris (also awarded to Roberto Alagna, Marcel Marceau, Linus Pauling and Rudolf Nureyev). She died in August 1996 and is buried at the Choisy-le-Roi cemetery. Kuhn recorded sparingly. Her legacy includes performances of Bach’s concertos for three and four pianos and works by Prokofiev, Kabalevsky, Shostakovich, and Khachaturian. Among the more unusual pieces by Khachaturian she recorded was the composer’s own piano transcription of the Chant du Mirza, from the Poem about Stalin (1937/8) which was released in 1950.
