Georgy Catoire

Born: 27th April 1861

Died: 21st May 1926

Birthplace: Moscow, Russia

Georgy Lvovich Catoire was a Russian composer of French heritage. Today he is very little known, although a few recordings exist of his piano works by Marc-André Hamelin, Anna Zassimova and Alexander Goldenweiser, and David Oistrakh and Laurent Breuninger recorded the complete violin music. His music has a certain semblance to the works of Tchaikovsky, the early works of Scriabin, and the music of Fauré. Catoire's compositions demand not only high virtuosity but also an ear for instrumental colour.
