Jacqueline Eymar (23 Jun.1922 - 6 Dec.2008 ), Pianiste
Born in Nice, France, studied under great pianist Yves Nat(1890-1956), Jacqueline Eymar has led in the thirty years after the war a rich career as a soloist and pianist of chamber music. Jacqueline Eymar has played a wide and varied repertoire, in which the classical & romantic period (Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin, Schumann, Brahms...) and French music (Fauré, Debussy, Ravel, Franck, Chabrier ...) took pride of place. Soloist of the National Orchestra and the French Radio and Television Orchestra, she was also a regular of the great Parisian associations, playing for the Society of the concerts of the conservatory or as part of the concerts Colonne and concerts Lamoureux. In Europe, the USSR (1958, 1961, 1967), Southeast Asia (1965) and America (1971), she has toured extensively, performing piano recitals and chamber music concerts for the public.
In addition to her solo work, Jacqueline Eymar has devoted an important part of her work to chamber music, collaborating actively with Günter Kehr - violinist and conductor of Germany - and with the trio Kehr, founded by the latter. At the time of the Franco-German reconciliation, they met in quartet and gave together many concerts in France, in Germany and in the world.
Criticism recognized him as an exceptional power and elegance of play, most often praising the architectural design of his works. On March 30, 1960, René Dumesnil wrote in Le Monde: "I have rarely seen such complete possession of an interpreter by the music it animates". On February 13, 1965, the composer Luc-André Marcel spoke to her in these terms: "The way you illuminate such detail, which you make emerge such second shot, which you conduct a crescendo, is such evidence that you can not not listen. Moreover, the extreme beauty of the sound and the astonishing variety of colors, the total absence of arbitrariness, of gratuitous virtuosity, add to this impression of hearing pure music. "
Jacqueline Eymar has given great importance to contemporary composers, showing to French and foreign audiences artists such as André Jolivet, Georges Migot, Serge Nigg, Antoine Tisne, Marius Constant and Luc-André Marcel, whose two concertos she has created for piano. In 1960, she performed in Pleyel Hall, Paris, the Khachaturian piano concerto (1926), which directed the National Orchestra.
In the 1980s, she retired to her family home in Pourrières (Var), reserving her performances to an audience of music lovers.
