French Violinist and Pedagogue Suzanne Gessner Has Died

She was to serve on the jury of the Jascha Heifetz International Violin Competition this coming month

A teacher at the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional and the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris in France, Ms. Gessner's students have gone on to win prizes at international competitions, including the International Mozart Competition and the Marguerite Long Jacques Thibaud Competition.

She studied in Strasbourg, Paris, and the United States at the University of Michigan and Conservatory of Chicago and has served on the jury of a number of important international competitions.

"In the world of violin, Suzanne Gessner was an outstanding teacher, adored by her students," violinist Renaud Capuçon said on Facebook today. "Her death will leave a great emptiness."

Our condolences to Ms. Gessner's family, friends, colleagues, and students.
