Canadian soprano Eva Gauthier (1885 - 1958) devoted most of her career to the art song. Her first concert appearance was in 1901, after which she traveled to Europe for further study in London, Paris (with baritone Jacques Bouhy), Berlin (with Anna Schoene-Renée), and then Milan (with Giuseppe Oxilia). After traveling throughout Europe and the United States, introducing modern songs to her audiences, she settled in Greenwich Village in NY. on 1 May 1917 the New York Times wrote, "Her [Gauthier's] program was ambitious, beginning with airs by Gluck, Ricci, Haydn, and Bishop, and the floral air M'odi from Donizetti's Lucrezia Borgia. She was nervous in the beginning and did not do herself justice. She was more fortunate in French songs that followed, and a Malay Epic by Paul Seelig, a cycle of three songs based on Malay folk tunes. Miss Gauthier's voice is not without pleasing quality, brilliancy, and power; she also has a certain fluency and facility in florid passage work .... Her style has not the finish of the finest art, but her singing of songs by Frenchmen of today and the day before yesterday gave pleasure because of her understanding of them and the appropriate expression which she found for them." French operetta star Germaine Gallois. Gallois was best known for her role as Mlle Lange in La Fille de Mme Angot, which she presented at the Paris Opéra on 28 Apr 1912 during a Gala performance.
