Ladies’ Night

Music for piano by women composers


Cathy Krier: “Women have always created. But few had the courage to defy the habits and customs of their time. Breaking free was often synonymous with marginality. How far were these composers willing to go for their art? Was it a more or less serious hobby or was creating and composing a necessity for them? I invite you on an initiatory journey through eras and aesthetics, retracing these journeys of exceptional women.”

Pieces by Amy Beach, Anna Bon di Venezia, Helen Buchholtz, Konstantia Gourzi, Fanny Hensel- Mendelssohn, Marie Jaëll, Catherine Kontz, Kaija Saariaho.
