Swiss pianist Lottie Morel was born on 24 July 1909, in Geneva (her maiden name was Huguenin). She studied at the Conservatoire de Musique de Genéve. Her teachers included Johnny Aubert (1888–1954) and Alexandre Mottu (1883–1943) (piano), Charles Chaix (harmony), and William Montillet (organ). Upon graduation she began a long and distinguished career as a professor of piano at the Conservatoire. She concertized extensively both as soloist and chamber musician (often appearing in concert with Hugues Cuénod, Charles Panzéra, and Pierre Fournier, among others). Throughout her career she championed contemporary music, and in particular Swiss composers. She is closely identified with two composers—Henri Gagnebin, (1886–1977) and André-François Marescotti (1902–1995), whose concertos and solo works were often featured on her programmes. Lottie Morel died on 25 January 1973, of an embolism, in Bordighera, Italy.
