Breaking the Glass Ceiling
Extra Eclectic for March 24, 2021
With few exceptions, classical music was very much a boy's club for centuries. Today, the rules are thankfully changing, with more and more women staking out their own territory as composers.
On this week's show, Steve Seel continues our celebration of Women's History Month with another program showcasing contemporary women composers. We'll hear recent works by Gabriela Lena Frank, Jennifer Higdon, Jessie Montgomery, Angelica Negron, Chen Yi, and many others.
