Magdalena Maria Yvonne Tagliaferro (19 January 1893 – 9 September 1986) was a Brazilian-born pianist of French extraction. Born in Petropolis, Brazil, she studied under Antonin Marmontel at the Paris conservatoire, then with Alfred Cortot. Tagliaferro's expertise at the piano in French repertoire led Gabriel Fauré to request that she tour with him, and she performed many of his compositions.
