When Lili Boulanger (1893-1918) won the renowned Prix de Rome in 1913, she was the very first woman to be honoured with this prize at all. Her far too early death led to her music always being in the shadow of Debussy and Ravel when talking about impressionist music. This CD with the Orpheus Vokalensemble is being issued in 2018, on the occasion of the centenary of her death. Due to her individual musical language, its diversity of colour, its metaphorical content and its poetry, Lili Boulanger can be counted as one of Impressionismís great artists. We would have liked to have heard more of her music.
