    Yura Guller plays Frédéric Chopin – Nocturnes Favorites

    Yura Guller was born in 1895 in Marseille, France. She started to learn the piano at the age of five, giving recitals at a very early age before enrolling at the Paris Conservatoire at just nine years old. It is here that she studied under Isidor Philipp, a tutor of impeccable pedigree having studied with Camille Saint-Saëns, Théodore Ritter & Georges Amadée St. Claire Mathias (himself a direct pupil of Frédéric Chopin).

    Bruckner’s Symphony No. 9 was written between 1893-1896 and was to be his last, the final movement remaining unfinished at point of his death in 1896. Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony is both unique and complex in style presenting the listener with many different patterns and themes, traits that can be found in nearly all of Bruckner’s Symphonies. Monumental in its form and design, a vast orchestral canvas and soundscape providing fertile ground for experimentation and harmonic counterpoint. It ranks as one of the most innovative symphonies to be composed in the 19th Century.

Yura Guller plays Frédéric Chopin – Nocturnes Favorites

Yura Guller was born in 1895 in Marseille, France. She started to learn the piano at the age of five, giving recitals at a very early age before enrolling at the Paris Conservatoire at just nine years old. It is here that she studied under Isidor Philipp (a tutor of impeccable pedigree having studied with Camille Saint-Saëns), Théodore Ritter & Georges Amadée St. Claire Mathias (himself a direct pupil of Frédéric Chopin). It was only Mathias who fully absorbed the Chopin tradition and carried it forward, in turn passing the legacy and philosophy of teaching to Isidor Philipp. This is one reason why these miraculous performances by Guller are so important, they give us a truly unique insight, with a direct line of tutoring that has passed on Chopin’s style through the generations. For us at ERC it is the finest interpretation of Chopin works ever recorded.

Guller faced many turbulent years during her lifetime. In the 1930’s she traveled to China where she stayed  for 8 years, before returning to France just before the breakout of the Second World War. Guller was of Jewish decent, and as such she was forced to restrict her playing activities and go into hiding. This long period of oppression that Guller faced only helps to solidify the emotional impact and beauty of these recordings. Sadly Guller also suffered a long period of illness which also curtailed her recording and performing.

For these reasons Yura Guller only produced four records during her lifetime; Two Chopin recitals for Ducretet-Thomson in the mid 1950’s, and two further recordings in the 1970’s for Erato (Beethoven Piano Sonatas Nos. 31 & 32) and a recital of works for Nimbus.

Guller has a unique style of pianism with beauty, honesty and integrity – light through the darkness.
