ANNE AZEMA IS “THE FIRST LADY OF MEDIEVAL MUSIC”

…according to the festival presenters in Cologne, Germany, and who are we to argue? The reviewer for Cologne’s main newspaper was similarly enthusiastic about Anne’s recital, writing that

“Azéma’s performance was a model of listening enjoyment; and at the same time, an introduction to new territory, where the listener could still feel at home, in an almost mystical way. The second Cologne early music festival succeeded in awakening curiosity with such a guest appearance, in which every note, every harmony was trusted, every sound an object of respect.”

OK, Deutschland, we thank you for the compliments. And now, back in New England, onward to the fabulous Lady Mass by Guillaume de Machaut, performed by The Boston Camerata in Amherst and Boston at month’s end….. and directed by our very own First Lady.
