Tuesday Evening Classics - Women Composers Festival Preview
Join Tuesday Evening Classics host David Schonfeld from 4-8 p.m. for a program honoring the many wonderful (and too often neglected) compositions by female composers. David will be playing recordings of music by Joan Tower and Lera Auerbach (in addition to works by Telemann, Bartok, Scarlatti, Homilius, and C.P.E. Bach).
From about 5-6 p.m., David will be talking with guest Daniel Morel about this year's Women Composers Festival of Hartford. Daniel will provide "teaser" tracks of music and composers to be featured during the Festival.
The Women Composers Festival of Hartford continues its annual tradition of celebrating the diversity of music by female composers with five engaging concerts, March 6-9, 2014. Featuring Philadelphia-based composer, Andrea Clearfield, as this year’s composer-in-residence, the festival includes performances of historical and living women composers.
