"After an unsuccessful first attempt in the 1912 competition, she won the Prix de Rome in 1913 with the cantata Faust et Hélène. Her success made the international headlines, as she was the first woman to win the prize for music. As a result, she was able to sign a contract with Ricordi that offered her an annual income in return for the right of first refusal on publication of her compositions."
