Clara Haskil

Clara Haskil (1895-1960) was one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century. Renowned as an interpreter of the classical and early romantic repertoire, Haskil was particularly noted for her performances and recordings of Mozart. Many considered her the foremost interpreter of Mozart in her time. Haskil was born into a Sephardic Jewish family in Bucharest, Romania, and studied in Vienna under Richard Robert and Ferruccio Busoni. She moved to Paris at the age of 10, where she started studying with Joseph Morpain, who she always credited as one of her biggest influences.
