Compositrices: New Light on French Romantic Women Composers

An extensive collection highlighting the many overlooked Romantic composers of nineteenth-century France.

This eight-CD set of under-performed compositions by twenty-one French women. The range of chamber music, orchestral works, piano pieces and songs captures Romantic nineteenth-century France with composers such as Marie Jaëll, Pauline Viardot, Louise Farrenc and Mel Bonis to the lesser known Charlotte Sohy, Marthe Grumbach, Hedwige Chrétien and Madeleine Lemariey.

With several hundred performers, soloists include soprano Anaïs Constans,tenor Cyrille Dubois, pianist Roberto Prosseda, and mezzo-soprano Aude Extrémo.

We feature Marie Jaëll’s Voix du printemps: No.2, Dans le sentier in our playlist Weekend Classics.
