Lola Bobesco (b1948)

Romanian-born Lola Bobesco, like many of the figures in this book, began tuition with her father, with whom she gave her first concert at the age of six. Her formative years were passed in France where she spent her summers at the home of Marcel Chailley and Céliny Chailley-Richez (who later formalised such casual music making with friends and students as the Chailley Summer School).

Having studied under Chailley and Boucherit in Paris, Bobesco gained the Prix d’excellence in 1934. International recognition came at the first Ysaÿe Competition in 1937 at which she was the only player trained in Paris or Brussels to be placed among the top ten competitors. In later life Bobesco settled into chamber music and orchestral leading, with a particular interest in Baroque music. She formed and led Les Solistes de Bruxelles, which later became known as L’Ensemble d’Archets Eugène Ysaÿe, and became orchestral leader and a professor in Liège.

Bobesco’s discography is very standard: she recorded sonatas by Beethoven, Fauré, Brahms, Franck and Debussy as well as a number of Baroque pieces, although she did make one or two excursions into more obscure repertoire with works such as Nin’s Quatre Commentaires or Golestan’s Tzingareilla.
