Lou Koster is the first female composer in Luxembourg and is well known in her own country, but is also now beginning to find international recognition.

When the renowned performers, tenor Vincent Lièvre-Picard and pianist Emmanuel Olivier first listened to her French songs, they were immediately charmed and impressed, and excited to be able to produce a nearly complete set of premiere recordings of these compositions. Vincent Lièvre-Picard: “In my view, the ‘mélodies’ to Paul Verlaine’s poems should be part of the repertoire!”

Lou Koster was a concert pianist and she taught piano for 46 years at the conservatory of Luxembourg. Her first compositions were French songs. Her art songs were published by renowned music publishers in Luxembourg and abroad. In addition to her songs, her oeuvre includes choir music, a whole series of pieces for the piano or for orchestra, stage works, and the operetta 'An der Schwemm' (At the baths).
