A formidable cellist departs, at 71

We have been informed from France of the death today in Strasbourg of Jean Deplace, one of the country’s most influential cellists and teachers.

Principal cello of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg and professor at Strasbourg Conservatoire and CNSM in Lyon, Deplace’s students included Christian Wolff, Anne Gastinel, Emmanuelle Bertrand, Pierre Strauch, Bruno Cocset and Renaud Déjardin. He played in a well-known duo with his wife, the pianist Andrée Plaine.
