於香港出生及成長的陳蝶梅(Francesca Chan)是本地少數贏得國際聲譽的女高音歌唱家,肄業於倫敦喬凱音樂及戲劇學院(Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London),主修聲樂和鋼琴,以優異成績完成課程。其後她跟隨數位國際知名及傑出的聲樂導師學習,受到他們嚴格的訓練和循循善誘的指導,加上她得天獨厚的音樂才能,大大提昇了她的演唱技巧和質素。這些名師包括德語歌曲導師庇雅斯爵士(Sir Peter Pears)和格魯納(Walther Grüner);演唱法國歌曲技巧的雷德福(Winifred Radford),聲樂指導導師羅莎(Vera Rozsa)及鋼琴家波德文(Dalton Baldwin)。
陳氏有深厚的音樂造詣,演唱技巧精湛,嗓子音色異常甜美,聲線控制一絲不苟,加上出息的語言能力,每次演出都得到各地樂迷和專業媒體的一致讚賞,
多年來,陳氏除了在香港有經常性的演出外,她亦被邀到世界各地超過二十個主要國家作巡迴演出。她亦曾參與多個藝術節、特別週年音樂會及廣播節目的演出,演唱過不同年代,不同國籍的著名作曲家的經典聲樂作品,與她合作過的著名音樂家多不勝數,這包括:帕森斯(Geoffrey Parsons)、約翰遜(Graham Johnson)、維諾利斯(Roger Vignoles)、楊遜(Rudolf Jansen)、哈帕(David Harper)和萊斯克(Clemens Leske)等。
但影響陳氏的音樂旅程最深遠的關鍵人物是一位對香港的古典音樂發展和推廣不遺餘力的紀參遜(Clive Simpson),他一直對陳氏全力支持和指導,使她在青雲路得以平穩地邁步,她倆後來更成為互相扶持的一生良伴。2015年是紀參遜逝世15週年,陳氏為了紀念這個影響她一生的伴侶,她集合了過往多年她在多個由紀參遜策劃的個人演唱會演唱過的歌曲,精心挑選了每一個國家最具代表性的作曲家最為人稱頌的作品,輯錄成她的個人演唱專輯【吾歌之旅(My Song Journey)】,藉以表達她對他的懷念和感激。同時她所挑選的每首歌曲都是以當地語言演唱,藉以展示該曲的演繹方法和原來神韻,使聽者更能深入地欣賞每一樂曲。因為每個音樂會在不同時期舉行,你可從樂曲了解、體驗和分享陳氏的在她歌唱旅途上亮麗的發展過程,同時亦可欣賞到她示範式的演繹,對鍾愛古典及藝術歌曲的樂迷來說,這是難得的歌唱美樂集。母盤之補足、調校及加強工序由發燒界權威<老虎魚(Pauler Acoustics)>處理,完全德國製造,專業推薦。

[Review]

‘Francesca Chan has a voice of exceptional charm, brilliance, and beauty of quality. A gifted linguist, she penetrates to the heart of the differing styles of the great song composers of many lands, and in addition to excellent musicianship, she possesses the enviable gift of true communication with her audience. Miss Chan is an admirable artist.’  ~ Winifred Radford


‘It gave me much pleasure to hear the soprano Francesca Chan…Together with eminent colleagues,…we were all very greatly impressed by the way her voice and artistry have developed…’ ~ Tony Dean, Director of Radio Programmes, European Broadcasting Union


‘…fascinating soprano…agile of voice, confident in stage presence and she places her notes securely and carefully, controlling her vibrato with taste. Her choice of music was enterprising, indicated that her pleasant voice answers to an enquiring mind.’ ~ Sydney Herald


‘Francesca Chan’s Berg was beautifully understated, reserved but clear in tone…[three songs by Doming Lam] was obviously music from the heart and the artist sang accordingly. With a riveting sense of excitement and tension she conveyed this well and this is what made her last selection of songs so compelling.’ ~ New Zealand Listener


‘…Miss Chan interpreted sensitively and beautifully. With no forcing of tone or personality she used a rather light voice, pure in pitch and even in register, creating the atmosphere of each poem quietly and building effectively to a climax.’  ~ New Zealand Herald


‘Francesca Chan’ s concert was an example of what a recital of art songs ought to be…the epitome of care, taste, good musicianship an fine ensemble sense…Miss Chan’s voice is a flexible, light-textured soprano…she knows how to use it amazingly well…a mark of a true lieder singer. [Her] Russian was remarkably faithful.’ ~ Hong Kong Standard


‘This singer’s art lies in her impeccable line…an experienced linguist, she gave charming interpretations in Russian.’ ~ Daily Telegraph, London


‘Francesca Chan is well-known for her welcome patronage of music by little-known and unusual composers…sensitively and delicately performed…pleasing performances characterised by a graceful vocal quality and…remarkable poetic effect.’ ~ South China Morning Post, Hong Kong


‘Top mark for an excellent recital from this Hong Kong soprano. She has a voice that is hard to equal in its ability to carry a simple melody with great charm. It is a voice with exceedingly sweet qualities.’ ~ Straits Times, Singapore


‘A singer of great refinement. I was moved by the depth and sincerity of her interpretations.’ ~ South Ocean Daily News, Singapore


‘Secure placement, smooth and even timbre, taste and refinement – obvious inher meticulous, delicate phrasing…’ ~ Daily Express, Manila

‘The recitals [recorded on the CD My Song Journey]…bear testament to the dazzling development of Chan’s musical journey. Her definitive interpretations of these masterworks are on full display. To aficionados of classical art song, this is a rare collection of vocal treasures…and wins our expert seal of approval.’ ~ Silk Road Music

‘There are but a few full-time professional classical vocalists in Hong Kong. Even rarer is a soprano who enjoys international recognition…Francesca Chan became a representative of such a singular species…The [CD] set comprises 52 works by composers from Russia, Norway, Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, France, Spain, China and the US—a testament to the breadth of Francesca Chan’s artistic spectrum.’  ~ Audiotechnique 音響技術 2015年12月號
