Women composers
Carmen Martínez-Pierret and Israel Fausto
 

With a woman’s signature

The Teatro de la Maestranza continues to pay tribute to the musical power of women, returning works to the music stands of so many composers excluded by history from the repertory, simply because their work was signed with the name of a woman.

The series “ Breaking the silence “ which began last season, directed by Carmen Martínez-Pierret and Israel Fausto, is a cycle of 12 concerts that gives voice to 60 composers. This season there are 4 chamber recitals in the Sala Manuel García with music by, among others, Cécile Chaminade, Lili and Nadia Boulanger, Alma Mahler and Pauline Viardot. On March 8, International Women’ s Day, there will be a monograph dedicated to the 19th century French composer and pianist Louise Farrenc, who reached fame during her lifetime, but was forgotten after she died in 1875.

Re-establishing the balance. Returning women composers to the halls where they always should have been heard. For brilliance and talent. Beyond gender.


« C'est l'heure rose…
          L’heure du songe…
L’heure d'être ivre,
Et d'aimer et de vivre. »
