La Femme - A Tribute to Creativity, Devotion and Love.
Despite depicting the 21 marvellous musical works and inspiring stories of the 21 composers, ’’La Femme’’, is a project that builds bridges between different cultures, breaks political borders and brings together the reflective works that speak of Peace, Devotion, Passion and Love. A group of 21 women composers from Middle Eastern, Western and Eastern Europe, Balkans, South Africa, Canada, USA and Latin America come together in this project to show equal values through their different backgrounds. Through much of history the language of women has been told through men, but La Femme turns this narrative upside down. All of these composers share an unrelenting will to be artistic, often in opposition to the societies in which they found themselves. From the very first medieval verses by Kassia via the blind virtuoso Maria von Paradis’ famed Sicilienne and holocaust victim like Weber’s moving Wiegala and powerful modern statements by the likes of Niloufar Nourbakhsh the entire project is dedicated to all creative women in music. In this journey, one can dream, think, pray, cry, cheer, dance and laugh.
’’La Femme’’ A bridge between different cultures and Border breaker!
These marvellous works are performed by ’’World Chamber Orchestra’’ a group of highly talented and professional musicians, all living in Vienna, and all coming from different countries. Therefore, the Orchestra carries also the name ’’World Chamber Orchestra’’.
What makes even more diverse this CD, it is the idea that there are not only 21 songs but there are also piano, violin, cello solos or smaller ensembles. I’m the producer and the singer of the project. There are two guest singers in the CD which should remain a surprise until you have the CD in your hands. I can only say that this journey has become very valuable to me. The works and also the stories behind them makes this project very meaningful.
You support is much needed and highly appreciated!
