A program highlighting women composers’ chamber music through the centuries. Featured are: Clara Schumann, who was discouraged from composing her own work because she was a woman, and became well known for performing and championing the work of her husband Robert; Louise Farrenc, who was appointed a professor at the Paris Conservatory in 1842, the only such appointment for a woman for the entire 19th century; Lili Boulanger, the first woman to win the prestigious Prix de Rome; Nokuthula Ngwenyama, an acclaimed violist and composer; and Joan Tower, who is regarded as one of the most important American composers living today.
