Claude Frank (1925 - 2014)

When Claude Frank was twelve years old his family moved to Paris where they resided from 1937. At this time Frank studied at the Paris Conservatoire, but by 1940 the political situation had become such that Frank had to escape via the Pyrenees and Lisbon to the United States. Not very long after his arrival he began to study with Artur Schnabel, but because he became a United States citizen in 1944 his studies were interrupted by military service. During a period of study at Columbia University he learnt theory with Paul Dessau and composition with Normand Lockwood, and at Tanglewood studied conducting with Serge Koussevitzky.

In 1947 Frank made his New York debut at Times Hall and a year later performed with the NBC Symphony Orchestra. A major part of his career from the early 1950s onwards has involved Frank in music festivals throughout Europe, Africa, Asia and North and South America. He is also highly regarded as a teacher and has taught at Bennington College, Mannes School of Music in New York and in 1972 became a Samuel Simons Fellow at Yale University. He has given master-classes and lectures at the Aspen Music Festival, Yale University’s School of Music and Curtis Institute of Music. Through his teaching at Bennington and its close proximity to Marlboro in Vermont, Frank became involved in the Marlboro Festival in 1953 when he was asked by Rudolf Serkin to help with coaching and playing chamber music.
