Teresa Carreno Rolls
By Matthew Caulfield

Of course I jumped in here and offered to send Sr. Sans a recording of
Teresa Carreno's "Mi Teresita" as played on the mighty Wurlitzer Style
165 band organ.  I don't know what he will do with it, since it's not a
pianola recording, but ...

Anyone who has read a little of the life of Madame Carreno-Tagliapietra
has to be struck by the force of her personality and her dynamism in a
country and at a time when it must have been hard for a female to make
her mark.  The portrait of her in the New Grove Dictionary Of Music And
Musicians conveys graphically a little of her strength.

I wish Sr. Sans and his group much success, and am sure the other
MMD'ers here will pitch in to help him honor this deserving

Matthew Caulfield

 [ In his Duo-Art rollography, Charles Davis Smith noted that Carreno
 [ sang as the queen in "Les Huguenots", and conducted the opera
 [ company when on tour in Venezuela; she was described as "the
 [ foremost female pianist since Clara Schumann.  Smith says:
 [ "In her earlier years she was a tempestuous, dynamic performer.
 [ In later years her piano style became more thoughtful and profound.
 [ ... Carreno was greatly venerated in Venezuela, where her ashes are
 [ buried."  -- Robbie
