Recital of eighteenth-century Spanish music. Sophie Wyss (soprano), accompanied by Roberto Gerhard
Sophie Wyss , who was born in Switzerland, studied at the Conservatoire de Geneve. In her ten years of broadcasting she can claim to have brought to the microphone more new works than any other singer. She was the first to bring to the listening public many of the songs of such composers as Honegger, Milhaud, and Tailleferre. She* sings in six languages with perfect understanding and has an almost unlimited repertoire.
The Catalonian composer, Roberto Ger hard, was born in 1896 at Vails, in the province of Tarragona. From 1916-21 he studied under Felipe Pedrell , the founder of modern Spanish music, and later became a pupil of Schonberg. Roberto Gerhard has written a number of interesting works, including the Trio in A flat, the Violin Sonata, and the ballet Ariel, founded on Shakespeare's The Tempest, which was first performed at the Festival of the International Society for. Contemporary Music at Barcelona in 1936.
