Francois-Frederic Guy

François-Frédéric Guy’s parents were college lecturers, his father being a very good amateur pianist whose own parents did not encourage him to pursue a musical career. He played many works of Chopin, and concertos by Tchaikovsky, Grieg and Rachmaninov. François-Frédéric was taught the basics of music by his mother but did not begin serious study of the piano until he was seven years old, subsequently taking lessons at a small conservatory in Évreux, Normandy. At the age of eleven Guy played Chopin’s Piano Sonata in B minor Op. 58 for Dominque Merlet of the Paris Conservatoire. Too young to enrol at the Conservatoire, Guy instead received private tuition from Merlet. At fourteen he could have entered the Paris Conservatoire, but Merlet wanted him to wait another year. At fifteen Guy failed the entrance examinations, but a year later was able to enrol at the age of sixteen. He studied with Merlet for ten years, gaining a premier prix in piano and another in chamber music. He also studied with Christian Ivaldi.
