Maria Riccarda Wesseling is riding on the wave of a flourishing career, highlighted at the moment by brilliant performances at the Paris Opera in collaboration with conductor Marc Minkowski. The Mezzo-soprano from the Grisons in Switzerland has chosen the intimacy of song to spotlight another facet of her superb voice. Accompanied by pianist Nathalie Dang, she performs works by three exceptional women composers: Clara Schumann, Lili Boulanger and Alma Mahler. These rarely recorded songs are brought together on one CD and must surely be described as a work of pure poetry.
