Lecture - "Expand the Repertoire: an Introduction to Women Who Composed" (Virtual)

9/25/21 (3pm - 5 pm)

Lecturer:  Sharon Su, Pianist

(bio) https://www.sharonsu.com/bio/

Description: A brief introduction to the lives of five historical women composers—Clara Schumann, Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel, Cécile Chaminade, Louise Farrenc, and Florence Price, luminous talents whose stories illuminate our understanding of what it takes to make music. In addition to telling the stories of their lives, I will recommend works that can be incorporated into repertoire at various levels of piano playing. I will also discuss the unique challenges I faced in the process of adding music by women to my own repertoire.
