A child prodigy, she was already a seasoned performer when she won a scholarship to study with Julius Klengel in Leipzig at the age of sixteen. Suggia lived in Paris with fellow cellist Pablo Casals for several years before World War I, in a professional and personal partnership they was as stormy as it was unconventional.

When they separated Suggia moved to London, where she built a spectacularly successful solo career. Suggias virtuosity and musicianship, along with the magnificent style and stage presence famously captured in Augustus Johns portrait, made her one of the most sought-after concert artists of her day. In 1927 she married Dr Jose Casimiro Cartcado Mena and settled down to a comfortable life divided between Portugal and England.
