Women Composers of Classical Music

371 Biographies through the Mid-20th Century

Mary F. McVicker (author)

ISBN: 9780786443970

Publication Date: Mar 2011

Format: Paperback

As early as the 1500s, a surprising number of women composed classical music. Many were successful, finding venues for both publishing and performing their music; others found the social barriers for women impossible to overcome. This examines these composers, both the well known and the obscure. For each composer a brief biographical sketch is provided, as well as a description of her body of work.
