The legendary French pianist Reine Gianoli (1915-1979) achieved early recognition as a child prodigy, studying with Alfred Cortot, Yves Nat and Edwin Fischer. She performed with leading orchestras led by such conductors as Paul Paray, Felix Weingartner, George Enescu, Hermann Scherchen, Karl Munchinger, Louis Auriacombe, Milan Horvat and George Sebastian. In recital, she appeared with such luminaries as Pablo Casals, Pierre Fournier, George Enescu and Edwin Fischer. She was a regular performer at leading festivals, including the International Strasbourg and Lucerne.
In 1946 she was appointed as a piano professor at the École Normale de Musique in Paris. Among her students was Jean-Yves Thibaudet.
