Edmond Appia (1894 - 1961)

Born in Turin, Edmond Appia began his violin studies at the Geneva Conservatory in the class of Henri Marteau, continuing his training in Paris between 1908 and 1913 with Guillaume Rémy and Lucien Capet. Interrupted by the war, his studies resumed in 1919 and in July 1920 with César Thomson at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Brussels, where he obtained a premier prix with high distinction. In 1925 he founded the Socété des Musiciens Professionnels of Geneva, serving as its first president. In 1928, he was appointed professor of the graduate violin classes at the conservatories of Lausanne and La Chaux-de-Fonds, holding those positions until 1943. The Geneva Conservatory hired him as a professor of the accompaniment classes and entrusted him with the History of Bowed Instruments course. From 1932 to 1935 he was leader of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, beginning his conducting career in 1935, when he assumed the duties of leader and assistant conductor of the orchestra of the Swiss Radio in Lausanne. He was able to bring to attention French and Italian classical music of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, as well as contemporary music and, in particular, the works of Pierre Wissmer; more generally, Swiss composers found him a generous interpreter. Edmond Appia was also a correspondent of the Revue Musicale de Paris, and the periodicals The Score of London, Musical Quarterly and Musical America, and wrote an essay on the history of music: De Palestrina à Bartók, Etudes
