Isidor Philipp (1863-1958) was a French pianist, composer, and pedagogue. Philipp studied piano under Georges Mathias (a student of Frédéric Chopin) at the Paris Conservatory where he won prizes for his piano playing. While at the conservatory, Philipp began a friendship with fellow student Claude Debussy, which would last until Debussy’s death in 1918. Philipp’s other teachers include Stephen Heller and Camille Saint-Saëns.
