Women Composers booklet

Women Composers booklet

(0)
A 16-page booklet containing twelve women composers, with youtube links, audio also available here: https://oli264.wixsite.com/sparkhallo/youtube-links Please note, TES will only let you preview pages 1,2 and 9. Introduction: The International Encyclopedia of Women Composers (1987) lists 6196 women composers, and that was published over 30 years ago. Today, an estimated 40% of living composers are women, but still, most of the composers we seem to learn about are men. It is strange how some books about music forget to mention any of these women composers. This one is different. This one will help you to make sure that you know about some of these amazing women, and about the world in which they lived. It will help you to secure their legacy after years of neglect.
