Barraine, Elsa (1910-1999)

by Bruno Fraitag

Daughter of a solo cellist at the Paris opera, who was removed from his position during the nazi occupation, like all the Jewish musicians of the orchestra, Elsa Barraine received the first Grand Prize of Rome at a very young age, in 1929.

Engaged in the Resistance during the war, she had a rich musical production, often inspired by judaism, as well as an important activity in the music edition and the administration of orchestras and lyrical theater. [1]
