Robert Casadesus (1899 - 1972)

Robert Casadesus came from a musical family: his uncle Francis (1870–1954) was a conductor and composer, his uncles Henri (1879–1947) and Marius (1892–1981) founded the Société Nouvelle des Instruments Anciens, violist Henri and cellist Marcel (1882–1914), who was killed in World War I, played with the Capet Quartet. At his birth Robert was abandoned by his mother, an acting student, and left to his father, an actor whose stage name was Robert Casa. The parents were never married and the child was raised by his Aunt Rose, herself a pianist. In 1912 Casadesus joined the class of Louis Diémer at the Paris Conservatoire, winning a premier prix at the age of fourteen. Six years later he won another premier prix, this time for harmony, and a year later won the Diémer Prize.
