Yvonne Lefebure (1898 - 1986)

Yvonne Lefébure’s first piano lessons were with a local teacher in Saint-Mandé. She was then enrolled at the École de Sèvres, and in 1906 was introduced to Marguerite Long who advised her parents that Yvonne should study music seriously. Lefébure joined the Paris Conservatoire, and when only nine years old won the Gold Medal in the Concours des Petits Prodiges. At fourteen she won a premier prix from Cortot’s class playing Beethoven’s ‘Appassionata’ Sonata Op. 57. Not long after, Lefébure made her debut with the Concerts Lamoureux and Camille Chevillard, playing the Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor Op. 22 by Saint-Saëns; and she also performed with the Concerts Colonne and Gabriel Pierné. Lefébure’s mother was concerned by the child’s public exposure and did not want her daughter to have the life of a prodigy. Lefébure returned to the Conservatoire where she took classes in counterpoint, harmony, accompaniment and fugue. By the time she left the Conservatoire she had won a premier prix in all of these disciplines.
