The Lyric Feature - Musical Muses, 7.00pm, RTÉ lyric fm.
In this three-part series, Ian Fox tells the stories of the remarkable women who inspired, influenced and collaborated with some of the great composers. In tonight's second programme, the subject is Misia Godebski, an exceptional figure from the Belle Epoque.
A gifted pianist and pupil of Fauré, she was a patron of many composers including Debussy and Stravinsky. She was painted by Renoir and Lautrec, appeared in Proust and helped establish Coco Chanel.
