Editorial Reviews

On this album the young Spanish soprano Sylvia Schwartz, accompanied by pianist Malcolm Martineau, offers a deeply seductive collection of romantic Spanish songs. The recording includes works by Granados and Turina as well as less familiar composers such as Guridi, Toldra and Montsalvatge. Schwartz demonstrates her wonderful emotional and dramatic range in Granados's Tonadillas en estilo antiguo, a set inspired by the paintings of Goya, and her commitment to this repertoire is evident from her utterly enchanting performance of the folk-influenced songs by Guridi that set a beautiful series of Castillan melodies.

3 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Basil Carmody on March 30, 2013
Up front, I'll admit to being a devoted admirer of Sylvia Schwartz.

She is a European soprano of Spanish descent whose repertory includes operatic roles, sacred music, lieder and musical comedies.

She is the latest of her family to achieve international renown.

She was born in London on 10th December 1982, the daughter of Pedro Schwartz Girón and Ana Maria Bravo.

Her father, who was decorated Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE)in 1990 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of England, is a well known professor of economics and political science. He is considered to be the leading advocate of the ideas of liberalism in Spain. He achieved broad international fame through a video recording of his debate on 3rd July 2012 with the Nobel Prize laureate economist, Paul Krugman. [2]

Her maternal uncle, Gonzalo Bravo Zabalgoitia, is a well known neurosurgeon and member of the Real Academia de Doctores de España. [3]

Her paternal grandfather, Juan Schwartz Díaz-Flores was Spanish ambassador to Austria. In the same way that Raoul Wallenberg did later at Budapest, he and other Spanish diplomats managed to save many Jews from persecution by the Nazis.

Her paternal grandmother, Carmen Girón Camino is a niece of the celebrated poet, León Felipe, and a first cousin of one of the outstanding Mexican bullfighters of the 20th c, Carlos Arruza (whose baptismal name was Carlos Ruiz Camino), known as "El Ciclón".)

Miss Schwartz began studying piano at the age of three, passing her first exam at age six.

In 1997, her parents moved to Madrid.
