Marguerite Long (1874 - 1966)

Margueritte Long first studied piano at the Nîmes Conservatoire and was discovered there at the age of twelve by Théodore Dubois, who invited her to join the class of Henri Fissot at the Paris Conservatoire. In Paris she also studied with Sophie Chéné, and after winning a premier prix joined the class of Antoine Marmontel (1816–1898), who heard Chopin many times and whose pupils included Bizet, Planté, Diémer, Albéniz and Debussy. Long made her Paris debut at the Salle Pleyel, but did not make her orchestral debut in public until 1903 when she performed César Franck’s Variations Symphoniques with the Lamoureux Orchestra conducted by Camille Chevillard. It was a great success that was praised by Fauré in Le Figaro.

In 1906 she was put in charge of the preparatory classes at the Paris Conservatoire, and when Louis Diémer died, she took over his class in 1920. In 1909 Long gave an all-Fauré recital in Paris and in 1919 gave the first performance of Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin, the Toccata of which is dedicated to the memory of her husband Joseph de Marliave who was killed in World War I. From 1921 Long also taught at the École Normale de Musique and gave master-classes on the works of Fauré and Debussy. Long also gave the first performance of Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G major which the composer dedicated to her.
