Pianist. She was acclaimed for her interpretations of contemporary French music. Long was a friend of Gabriel Faure, Claude Debussy, and Maurice Ravel, and first performed Ravel's "Le Tombeau de Couperin" (1919) and Piano Concerto in G (1932). She recorded the latter under the composer's supervision. Long was born in Nimes, France, and began her concert career at age 17. When her husband, music critic Joseph de Marliave, was killed during World War I, she suffered a breakdown and did not appear in public for several years. Long taught piano at the Ecole Normale de Musique from 1921 and at the Paris Conservatory from 1926; her pupils included Jacques Fevrier and Samson Francois. In 1943 she and violinist Jacques Thibaud founded the International Long-Thibaud Competition, which still provides a showcase for upcoming talent.
