Miraba la noche el alma: Art Songs by Latin American and Catalan Women Composers

Miraba la noche el alma: Art Songs by Latin American and Catalan Women Composers


Although in recent years there has been significant progress for women composers, there is still a lot to do to promote and appreciate women's creative work. For this reason, we decided to record a CD entirely devoted to works written by Latin American and Iberian female authors, some of whom are active at the present time. The selected composers belong to different generations and exhibit very different and interesting styles. Among the included composers are the Argentine Lía Cimaglia (Buenos Aires, 1906-1998), a remarkable pianist, pedagogue and composer; Celia Torrá (Conception de Uruguay, 1899-1962), a virtuoso violinist, composer and pedagogue; as well as pianist and composer Irma Urteaga (1929). From Cuba, we include works of the composer and pedagogue Gisela Hernández (1912-1971) and from Brazil, the songs of Babi de Oliveira (1903-1993) and Kilza Setti (1932*). We also feature works by the Mexican composer Maria Grever (1885-1951) and the Catalans Carlota Garriga (1937*) and Anna Cazurra (1965*). To see complete track list click on the image.
