"Maurice Maréchal was born in Dijon and studied music at the conservatories there and in Paris before World War I. At the Conservatoire National, where one of his teachers was Paul Dukas, he was awarded a cellist's first prize.
After four years as an infantryman in the war, Mr. Maréchal became the Lamoureux Orchestra's cello soloist, before embarking on an international concert and chamber music career in which he played with most major orchestras and many famous soloists. Mr. Maréchal, considered one of the foremost cellists of his time, also was a professor at the Paris Conservatory."
