Lunchtime Concert: Violin and Piano Music by Women Composers

Thursday 5th November 2020

The 19th Century was ambivalent towards female violinists. On the one hand they were tolerated as soloists, on the other they were denied participation in professional orchestras and violin playing was considered improper and too masculine for women. In spite of this women continued to compose and perform in private circles.
