About this Event

Music by women is now heard more often — but still not often enough — in contemporary music concerts. But it’s still rare to hear female composers from the 17th to early 20th centuries, especially in piano recitals. There is a tremendous variety of Baroque, Classical, and Romantic works by women which needs to be part of the standard repertoire, by remarkable composers like Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, Hélène de Montgeroult, Fanny Mendelssohn, Teresa Carreño, Germaine Tailleferre, and countless others. Sarah Cahill has been performing more than sixty compositions by women from the last four centuries and around the globe, and presents some of them in this Piano Talk as a celebration of the centennial of the 19th Amendment.
