Chamber Music I: Feminae

Spotlight on female composers

Informationen Zum Werk

Female composers through the centuries

About the performance

Where are the women in the history of composition? And who are they? Very few have ventured into this male-dominated territory, and to this day most female composers have barely been heard of. In the first Chamber Music concert of the season musicians of the orchestra present their personal favourites and the works associated with them. Personalities range from Isabella Leonarda in the 17th century to Amy Beach, the first American woman to write a symphony, and composers of the modern era.
