More on Women Composers

This month, Clef Notes looked at several talented women composers—from Hildegard von Bingen of the eleventh century, all the way to Lili Boulanger of this past century. Some of these composers and their stories were inspired by a new book, just released by cultural historian Anna Beer, Sounds and Sweet Airs: The Forgotten Women of Classical Music.

If this is a topic you enjoy, you can learn more about this excellent book by listening to an interview with Anna Beer.

Join me next month for a return to an annual favorite: Music and Cinema!
