�Cesbron-Viseur's�inimitable French style has disappeared in an age of mediocre singing. [This celebrated artists�s pupils included R�gine Crespin & Eliette Schenneberg]�.whose sound gives me chills�."

- Ward Marston, Courier-Post, 21 July, 1996

�Jane Laval was born Jane Santiard in Nizza. She studied with Hettich, Albers and Isnardon. She received the �Prix du Conservatoire Paris� in 1916. She made her d�but at the Grand Op�ra Paris in Rameau�s CASTOR ET POLLUX. She appeared at the Teatro Col�n in Buenos Aires where she appeared as Siebel, St�phano (ROM�O ET JULIETTE), Frasquita and Ellen (LAKM�). She was invited to sing Mica�la and Nedda at the Opera of Monte Carlo. In 1921 she reappeared at the Grand Op�ra where she sang the title-role in Franck�s REBECCA. She sang in operas such as Magnard�s GUERCOEUR, Bloch�s BROC�LIANDE, Roussel�s PADM�VATI, Emma in Mussorgsky�s KHOVANSHCHINA, �nnchen in Weber�s FREISCH�TZ and Sophie . Later she added heavier roles to her repertoire (Elsa, Sieglinde, Nedda). She was one of the most celebrated French concert artists and sang at Faur�s funeral. She made guest appearances at the opera houses of Buenos Aires, Barcelona and Covent Garden. Hers is a voice of remarkable purity of a rare luminous timbre.�
