WOMEN COMPOSERS ON CLASSICAL DISCOVERIES AND AVANT-GARDE EDITION

Every March from 2004, in observance of Women’s History Month, Classical Discoveries pays tribute to music by women composers from all over the world and through the centuries. Every regular scheduled program (that includes the new Avant-Garde Edition starting in 2009) is exclusively devoted to their music
This programming does not mean that these opportunities are the only time you can hear women composers on Classical Discoveries.
From its beginning, this program has been committed to making its listeners aware about music that is rare or never presented on other radio stations. Almost every program for many years includes compositions by women. “Classical Discoveries” has included complete Symphonies, Oratorios, Operas and other major works, and has presented many World and American premieres broadcasts as well as private recordings.
The listing below contains the annual “In Praise of Woman” programs as well other specials and listings of Guest Composers and a presentation of Operas written by women. This material gives you an idea as to how many composers there are. Unfortunately, the limited time of the program is not allowing a complete presentation, but it is much more than anywhere else. More details, such as where you can find recordings, links to websites devoted to music by women,and additional information can be found on individual playlists going back to 2001.

History was not very kind to women in the past. They were destined to be wives and mothers, were kept away from education and culture by controlling fathers, brothers and husbands. Women were forbidden to write, compose, or paint and the only way for some to escape that path was to join a convent, however these often had many restrictions imposed by male superiors. The lucky ones born to wealthy or artistic families were allowed to be creative, often only till they got married. Some of them could not escape the sad destiny of having their works claimed by men. Many women did not sign their works or they used a male name. It has been suggested by many researchers that women are behind many anonymous works. .
Only recently, recording technology and general awareness have brought to light women composers going back many centuries, proving that despite difficult circumstances, women's contribution to the humanities is equal to that of their male counterparts.

At the time when everyone was celebrating birthday of Mozart, how many remembered the 200th anniversary of Fanny Mendelssohn? Do you think the current situation is getting better?

This page is not reflecting any endorsement of individual composers by the host and producer of this program.
Most presentations are designed with the thought of introducing listeners to a wide scope of works created by women from different historical periods, geographical regions and is based on availability in the host’s library as well as time constrictions and the individual taste of the host.
