New project: Le Donne e la Chitarra
The aim of this project is to draw attention to the music of women composers whose works have been unjustly neglected on recordings and in performance for over a hundred years. Featuring music by Emilia Giuliani (1813-1850), daughter of the famed Mauro Giuliani, who composed uniquely dynamic works full of expression and originality; Catharina Pratten (1821-1895), whose wistful romantic works reveal the sensitive innocence of a bygone age and Athénaïs Paulian (1802-c.1875) the near anonymous composer of a single opus imbued with charm and a profound ease of invention. This music is evidence of the significance of women composers and performers throughout the 19th century while its quality and diversity give it a timeless relevance that speaks to the modern world.
