“…Yet somebody must play accompaniments, and that is the work I love”

Gerald Moore (1899 – 1987) The Unashamed Accompanist


Born in Mataró (Barcelona, Spain), she finished the Chamber Music studies with full marks, and a postgraduate course under the guidance of Liliana Maffiotte in the  Conservatori Superior de Barcelona (Barcelona High School of Music). She also got a Prize of Honour in the Intermediate level, under the guidance of Anna Ferrer.

One of the prestigious “La Caixa”-The British Council scholarships enabled her in 1994 to specialize as an accompanist and répétiteur at Trinity College of Music London (TCML), United Kingdom, during three years, where she was awarded a Postgraduate Course in Accompanying with “Distinction”, the “David Braund Memorial Prize for Accompanists” and was “Commended” in the “Leonard Smith Competition” for strings and piano ensemble. Her tutors were David Newbold and John Henry, and she also attended “Lieder” masterclasses by Roger Vignoles, Julius Drake, Christine Croshaw, Ian and Jennifer Partridge and Hazel Wood.

At Trinity she also took an active part in orchestra and ensemble playing as member of the two Symphony Orchestras and the Big Band during three years.

Her recordings include live broadcasts by the BBC and RNE (Spanish National Broadcasting Company). She became increasingly focused on the accompanying of singers since 1995, when she accepted the post of Accompanist in the Foreign Language Classes for Singers at TCML during three academic years. In 2020 she co-founded the Ensemble Halcyon, which especialises in Lied-Oratorio répertoire for two voices and piano.

She has been running her own coaching studio in Barcelona since 2002, while also collaborating with other music institutions such as “Servei de Música de la Fundació “La Caixa”, Palau de la Música Chamber Choir, "Escuela Superior de Canto de Madrid", "Asociación Aragonesa de la Ópera", Novaria Opera Season, or "Gran Teatre del Liceu" ( Barcelona Opera House).

Also in great demand as an accompanist in recitals, singing competitions and concert series, she has performed in the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, France, Belgium, Andorra, Finland and Russia, as well as in many Spanish concert venues.

The studio

On March 13th 2002 the piano made its entrance into the former porter's lodge (later a graphic design studio) where I started my accompanist's studio in Barcelona. Seven years later, in 2009, we went onto a new stage by totally renovating the premises so as to make them more suitable for profesional classical singing practice and performance. Thus, over the years its good acoustics, spaciousness and brightness, have enabled me to hold répértoire coaching sessions regularly, as well as many recitals, work as a répétiteur in operas and zarzuelas, recording sessions, auditions, and masterclasses by renowned singing teachers.

Surrounded by leafy gardens and squares, its good connection by public transport to any destination is an advantage in order to make the most of our collaborative work in a city of reference in the Opera world.
