Devy Erlih (Paris, 5 November 1928 – Paris, 7 February 2012)[1] was a French violinist and the 1955 winner of the Long-Thibaud competition.

Background[edit]

Erlih was born in France in 1928 to first-generation immigrants to France from Bessarabia (now Moldova).[2] His father was a folk musician who played the cimbalon and pan pipes. His parents made sure that he spoke only French so that he would not be known as an immigrant.
