We congratulate Professor Bettina Smith on her new release. Together with pianist Jan Willem Nelleke, Smith has released the CD "The Artist's Secret" with works for song and piano, written by female composers.
Mezzo-soprano Bettina Smith and pianist Jan Willem Nelleke invite us into a somewhat forgotten and seldom performed repertoire with their CD, “The Artist's Secret.” The release contains works for voice and piano, written by female composers.
Mezzosoprano Bettina Smith is a performing artist and Professor of singing at the Faculty of Performing Arts, University of Stavanger, Norway. She has also taught singing at the Schubert Institute at Baden bei Wien (as an Artist in Residence), the Grieg Academy at the University of Bergen (main instrument), the Amsterdam Conservatory of Music (Erasmus exchange teaching), and the Norwegian Academy of Music (masterclass).
