Colombian-Spanish Soprano Patricia Caicedo is an international concert and recording artist and the leading interpreter of the Latin American and Spanish Art Song.
Singing in Spanish, Portuguese, Quechua and Catalan she draws listeners into the world of beauty, poetry, and warmth that is the Latin American Art Song – a world that continues to thrive because of her determination to ensure its future.
Caicedo’s distinguished career includes concerts with symphony orchestras and recitals in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Latin America where she is hailed by audiences and critics alike. As one reviewer noted, “Reflecting her deep emotional connection to the music, she interprets the repertory with extraordinary sensitivity and sweetness.”
She has recorded two CDs dedicated to the Latin American Art Song -- “To My Native City” (2005) and “Art Songs of Latin America” (2001)-- has collaborated on other CDs, and is preparing a new recording of Colombian art songs. Both CDs are available for purchase on this website.
As a musicologist, Caicedo is internationally recognized as the leading expert in the study and performance of the Latin American art song, a tradition she has almost single-handedly rescued from extinction. Her pioneering book The Latin American Art Song: A Critical Anthology and Interpretive Guide for Singers was published in Barcelona. In January 2009 Mundo Arts Publications published her two new books title: The Colombian Art Song - Jaime León: Analysis and Compilation of his works for voice & piano.
She is the founder and artistic director of the Barcelona Festival of Song, the only summer course and concert series focused on the study of the history and interpretation of the Latin American & Spanish Art Song repertoire.
With her talent, knowledge, and determination to preserve an important part of the world’s musical heritage, Patricia Caicedo is indeed The Voice of the Latin American & Spanish Art Song.
