A lecture followed by a recital of piano and chamber music by Australia women composers.
Music is an art of- and in its time. Yet, fashion is not everything… Is there, after all, good and bad music? And who decides? Composers and performers seek recognition- but on whose terms is this achieved?
This presentation looks at the piano music of composers who faced battles every day to have their music recognised, published, performed and remembered. They were all women! Were their battles any harder than those of their male peers at the same time? Was it because they wrote against fashion? Or was it because they were women – composing against a tide?
Jeanell Carrigan presents her reflections in the pre-concert talk on some remarkable Australian Women who wrote music. The concert following will present chamber, vocal and piano music by Margaret Sutherland, Dulcie Holland, Una Bourne, Meta Overman, Peggy Glanville Hicks, Kitty Parker and Esther Rofe.
Jong Eun Paik (soprano) | Nattanan Low (clarinet) | Jeanell Carrigan (piano)
