Cecile Ousset.
on: June 18, 2005, 06:34:45 AM
Okay, so whatever happened to this lady?  The only thing of hers I've ever come across (albeit without much searching) is the CD that I have - the Paganini Etudes and the B minor Sonata (although her performance is quite jaw-dropping, in my opinion).

Just curious.  Every time I hear anything about either of those works, she comes to mind.

I have a very old record of all French piano music.

She plays a stunning Saint Saens Etude en Forme de Valse and Allegro Appasionata.

Also i have a CD of the Brahms Pag Variations played extremely fast.

She is certainly one hell of a pianist.

I believe she was on the jury of the latest Rubinstein competition.  The CV, on the following link....


... doesnt mention any recent performances, so I suspect that she may have retired as a player.
