Alma Schindler Mahler
(1879-1964) (Austria/USA)

" One can hear the kinship to late Fauré and Debussy, but Boulanger's application of impressionistic tonal color, pentatonic scales and subtle rhythmic devices reveals her own unique voice...No one with even a passing interest in the art song should miss this record." Ovation. "The Alma Mahler songs are marvels...some of the best, strongest and most original art songs of their period." San Francisco Chronicle.
