This CD's program celebrates an amazing French Spanish woman composer and singer from the 19th century, Pauline Viardot, as well as composers who were inspired by her vocal and compositional genius. Although she was a muse, mentor and hostess to all the great names of the French romantic music and arts, she is not a household name, and we think she needs to regain her rightful place as a woman composer and powerful influencer.
Many of these are rarely performed and the cycle of songs 'Seis Melodías' by Ruperto Chapí, has never been recorded before.
