KulturKolleg: Great Austrian female composers - from the 18th century to the present
In the new issue of the KulturKolleg we will listen to the works of talented Austrian female composers and learn more about their lives.
They were forced to overcome significant obstacles for the sake of their love. And there were a lot of them - general skepticism and prejudice against women in the patriarchal world, legal and financial restrictions, racism.
The life of each composer is a small step forward on the way to women's recognition in the professional music world.
The presentation and concert will be conducted by Austrian musicians Andrea Schwab (mezzo-soprano) and Joanna Niederdorfer (piano).
The programme includes works by the composers Maria Theresia Paradis (1759-1824), Julie von Baroni-Cavalcabò (1813-1887), Camilla Frydan (1887-1949), Anita Lelewer (1915-2012), Katharina Kreuz (geb. 1982), Sylvia Sommer (geb. 1944) and other.
