1 measure from an unidentified technical study, being an 8-note staccato pattern in C major, repeated in C-sharp major, both under one downbow, marked "Presto." On an album leaf. Signed and dated "Liège 30 Mai 1921" in black ink.
No compositions by the French violinist Thibaud are recorded.
"At 13 his precocious talent took him to the Paris Conservatoire... He formed a trio with his brothers, a pianist and a cellist of ability, but it was as the partner of Cortot and Casals in a famous trio, chiefly active from 1930 to 1935, that he is remembered as an ensemble player... Thibaud never retired; he appeared in London when he was over 70 and gave his last concert at Biarritz ten days before he was killed in an air crash on his way to a concert tour in the East Asia." W.W. Cobbett and Noël Goodwin in Grove Music Online. Item #27080
