A musical voyage of discovery: Female composers for guitar. Already at the beginning of the nineteenth century, highly virtuoso works and also many romantic character pieces were written for the then fashionable instrument of the lady. Madame Sidney Pratten, who in addition to concert activity and composition was also the guitar teacher of the children of Queen Victoria, stands here as an example of today almost forgotten, but at that time very successful careers as an artist.
In the twentieth century, in addition to virtuosos who write for their own instrument, there are also more and more female composers who also compose for the guitar, in particular Sofia Gubaidulina and Sylvie Bodorova, for whom music for the guitar stands next to great forms.
Pleasant, exciting and beautiful music by composers yet to be discovered, a program for musical gourmets!
