Editor's info:
Lucia Swarts and Challenge Classics celebrate twenty years of collaboration with this new CD by Lucia focusing on chamber music by five women composers.

Lucia Swarts: Even as a young child, I was taught to be extra alert when women did not have the same opportunities as men. Many women did not have the same opportunities as men to compose and publicly share their musical ideas and lead public lives as composers, with some having their freedom limited by ill health or because family or society had different plans for them.

Through the ages, female composers encountered considerable difficulties, often with fewer opportunities, support and education, even when they were members of the upper social classes. They were not in a position to enjoy worldwide fame, but several of them accomplished a great deal. Strong women, in other words.

I have chosen from the works of five special women for this CD. Five women with eventful lives who deserve a podium because of their musical qualities. Two Germans Fanny Mendelssohn and Clara Wieck both trained in the classic Romantic school, and two French women, Melanie Bonis and Lili Boulanger; Melanie, also a classic Romantic composer in style and Lili, impressionist and exotic. Finally the Dutch composer Henriette Bosmans, whose parents influenced her in the German Romantic style but whose own interests wandered eagerly towards the French Impressionists in an ongoing quest for her own independent compositional method.

BBC Music Magzine * * * *:
the best comes from Lili Boulanger. D’un soir triste sounds as if it could be a delightful Elgarian salon work; yet the French composer is at her most profound in this ten-minute piece...She left several arrangements of the piece, including for orchestra, but Swarts makes a strong case for this cello and piano version, revelling in her instrument’s darker colours.
