Great solo piano works by women composers from 1775-1850

Music by Marianna von Auenbrugger, Marianne Martines, Maria Szymanowska, Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel, and Clara Wieck Schumann

July 18, 2020

A two-part concert series highlighting the incredible piano music of some sadly forgotten women composers.  Artistic Director Daniel Weiser will play this incredible music and talk about the lives of these women who still struggle to get their voices heard.  Part One will focus on the period from 1775-1850 and feature some almost unknown Viennese women—Auenbrugger and Martines—along with a Polish woman–Szymanowska—who strongly influenced Chopin.  We will conclude with several amazing works by Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel, the sister of Felix Mendelssohn, as well as Clara Wieck Schumann, the wife of Robert Schumann.  Sadly, neither man did nearly enough to showcase the incredible composing talents of these amazing women!

Part two of the series will take place on Saturday, July 25 at 7:30 on location at the White Horse in Black Mountain, one of the birthplaces of AmiciMusic.  This program will feature works by Farrenc, Chaminade, Beach, Price, Bonds, and more.
