A journey to the myth of female power and soul in medieval history and imagination! Anne Azéma sings and tells of real like imagined women of the 12th. Century: Famous nobles like Queen Isolde the blonde or Comtessa da dia meet archetypes that still affect our image of women-like the "Distant beloved", the "Naughty shepherdess" or the Virgin Mary, who receives a place of honor in this concert. With passion, joy, sadness and humour, Anne Azéma makes women alive, who lived eight centuries ago. The French Troubadours Jaufré packs and Guiraut de Bornelh come to the word, as well as the most famous minstrel Comtessa de Dia, who sings the courtly love from a feminine point of view.

About Anne Azéma: 

“A most accomplished singer, Anne Azéma, is a riveting narrator. She manages to express, both in song and in words, intense passion, delight and longing in delicate detail. A breath of fresh air.”– Gramophone, London

French-born vocalist, scholar and stage director Anne Azéma directs The Boston Camerata (2008) and the French ensemble Aziman (2005). Intensely engaged since her student days with solo song of the Middle Ages, she is esteemed as a charismatic solo performer. But she is also widely admired for creative skill in building and directing complete musical productions of varied styles and periods, both for her soloist-oriented programs centered around her original repertoires, and for larger ensemble forces (concert and stage) in Europe and the United States. Anne Azéma's  current discography of 35 recordings (Grand Prix du Disque; Edison Prize) includes five widely acclaimed solo CD recitals.  Since assuming the directorship of The Boston Camerata in 2008, she has created a series of fourteen  new productions,  acclaimed by press and public alike. Ms. Azéma is in demand as a solo recitalist, presenting her original programs to audiences in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. In May, 2017, she has been presented with the Distinguished Artist Award of the Saint Botolph Founation, in recognition of her work as a director.
