    Abstract:
    Cicely Foster (1903-2002) va ser una compositora anglesa, alumna entre d'altres d'Alfredo Casella, Alfred Cortot i Nadia Boulanger. El 1932 ella i el seu marit, el pintor nord-americà Archie Gittes, es varen instal·lar a Mallorca. L'illa era aleshores un refugi de bohemis i artites estrangers, entre els quals Robert Graves, Albert Vigoleis Thelen o Manuel de Falla, amb qui la compostora tenia amistat. En aquest article presentam per primera vegada l'arribada de Cicely Foster a Mallorca i la seva relació amb els cercles musicals i artístics de l'illa que la va inspirar. Cicely Foster (1903-2002) was an English composer, a student of Alfredo Casella, Alfred Cortot and Nadia Boulanger, among others. In 1932 she and her husband, the American painter Archie Gittes, moved to Mallorca. The island was then a refuge for bohemians and foreign artists, including Robert Graves, Albert Vigoleis Thelen and Manuel de Falla, with whom the composter was friend. In this article we present for the first time the arrival of Cicely Foster in Mallorca and her relationship with the musical and artistic circles of the island that inspired her.
