Women of Note

Concert or Performance

16 Oct 2020

Salut! presents a concert of baroque music with works by Barbara Strozzi, Francesca Caccini, Isabella Leonarda, Maddalena Sirmen, Élisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre, Marianna Martines and Wilhelmine Margravine of Bayreuth.

Stunning arias, inventive sonatas and perfectly crafted concertos were not enough for women to be acknowledged as composers during the Baroque period. To flourish, they needed good family connections and a generous patron. This program celebrates some of the extraordinary women whose compositions have survived and who were fortunate to have had support from the likes of the Medici family, Louis XIV and Frederick the Great (including his sister, Wilhelmine). As we listen to these brilliant pieces and admire the talent of these composers, we can only imagine the demoralisation of having no expectation of their works being publicly performed or published.
