Notes and Editorial Reviews

Pauline Viardot (1821-1910) is one of those artists whose name and compositions were forgotten after her death. Despite this, she is one of the most fascinating, versatile and original musicians of the nineteenth century. Alongside her activities as a singer, she was also a pianist, composer, arranger, editor, and pedagogue. Only in recent years has her significance in the musical life of the nineteenth century been gradually recognized, and the range of her work known. The present release contains Viardot’s settings of German texts, primarily composed during her period in Baden-Baden between 1863 and 1871 and songs which were also published in German translation. Miriam Alexandra is of German-Greek ancestry and was born in Heidelberg. She Read more received her vocal training at the music academies in Karlsruhe and Cologne with Christiane Hampe and Klesie Kelly. She then travelled as a Visiting Fellow to Harvard and Cambridge for further studies. During her academic studies, she was a scholarship holder of the German Academic Scholarship Foundation, the Yehudi Menuhin Foundation Live Music Now, the Richard Wagner Society in Karlsruhe and the Brahms Society in Baden-Baden. Much in demand as a concert singer, she has worked with all of the most respected conductors and orchestras in the world. Her repertoire includes both standard works and rarely performed works.
