Ida-Marie-Louise Périn was born in Meires on 25 September 1906. She studied with Isidor Philipp at the Paris Conservatoire, receiving a first prize at the age of 16 in 1923. In 1925 she participated in the Saint-Saëns Festival in Paris (the Orchestre Lamoureux was conducted by Paul Paray) playing the Concerto No 2, Op 22. French critic Paul Le Flem wrote: “Ida Périn a joué avec une surprenante autorité le concerto op 22.” Her first significant solo concert took place on 24 February 1926 at the Salle Erard which received a review by Louis Vuillemin in Paris-Soir: “Ida Périn, l’une des meilleures disciples du Maître Isidore Philipp, joue superbement du piano. Elle a la force et le charme, la claire et exacte comprehension musicale.” Périn also played Saint-Saëns’s C minor Concerto (the fourth) extensively, as well as music by Gabriel Pierné (she participated in the 1930 Pierné festival in Paris). Her 1930 Paris concert elicited the headline in Le Figaro: “Ida Périn: Un nom à retenir (A name to remember).” In 1932 she formed a trio with cellist Fernand Pollain and violinist André Meilhan. In 1933 she won third prize at the Liszt International Piano competition, in Budapest. That year’s jury was most impressive: Backhaus, Bartók, Lamond, Cortot, Casella, Fischer, Friedman, Levitzki, Petri, Philipp, Rachmaninov, Rosenthal, Rummel, Sauer, Dohnányi, Pauer, and Tovey.
