Notes & Reviews:

After studies in French literature in Tokyo, the guitarist Azusa Shimizu moved to Europe. While in France, she studied at the National Conservatory in Nice, La Coeurneuve and Boulogne. She also studied at the Royal Academy of Copenhagen and was a Laureate artist from the Palme d'Or in Italy. It is fitting that she has chosen a program by composers influenced by Paris, as both Ponce and Tansman lived and shared their lives there during the Belle Epoque.
