Char­lotte Hig­gins Pen­rith

I was sad­dened to hear last year of the death of An­nette Cé­line, daugh­ter of the fa­mous Pol­ish pi­anist Felicja Blu­men­tal and a suc­cess­ful so­prano in her own right. Since hear­ing that she had died, I have been play­ing her al­bum Canti­gas (on the Brana Records la­bel) on re­peat. On this won­der­ful disc of mu­sic by Latin Amer­i­can com­posers, ac­com­pa­nied by pi­anist Christo­pher Gould, her ver­sion of Hen­rique’s tonguetwist­ing Trem do Alagôas is im­pres­sive and her per­for­mance of Ovale’s Azulão is beau­ti­fully hyp­notic. I would highly rec­om­mend it to any­one.
