For more than a decade, I have championed and explored forgotten pieces of the French classical repertoire, in particular, that of French female composers who were active at the turn of the 19th century. 


 Women were very active in music salons where high society came together to exchange ideas and knowledge as well as poetry and music. Hèlène de Montgeroult, Marie Bigot, Mme Desfossez, Mme de Villeblanche, Caroline Boissier Buttini, Mme de Charrière, Fanny Mendelssohn, Julie Candeille, all musicians, performers, composers active on the Parisian scène at the turn of the 19th century. They were not just music lovers. They succeeded in going beyond the limits imposed upon them by their gender and social standing,both of which typically prohibited pursuingmusic professionally. They became renowned pianists, sought after teachers, and admired composers who were heard in salons all over Europe.Their music is a powerful testament to their need to create in spite of the restrictions oftheir social and domestic position. It is time to bring light to this music ignored because of gender

In 2023 I have been recording at the Paris Philharmonie and Geelvinck Museum in the Netherlands a new album ‘’des Dentelles à l'échafaud’’ dedicated to two French women composer which particularly touch me: Ms Hélène de Montgeroult (1764-1836) and Ms Marie Bigot de Morogues (1786-1820).  

Extract of my program ''Impressions Françaises'' featuring French women composers actives at the turn of the 20 century: Mel Bonis, Cecile Chaminade, Lili and Nadia Boulanger, Germaine Tailleferre.
