Essential Early Women Composers

Presented by La Donna Musicale - RUMBARROCO at Traina Center for the Visual and Performing Arts, Clark University

Friday, Oct 25 at 7:30 pm

Traina Center for the Visual and Performing Arts, Clark University

92 Downing Street, Worcester, MA 01610

 

We begin with music by Hildegard von Bingen and conclude with a harpsichord concerto by Maria Teresa Agnesi. Works by Barbara Strozzi, Isabella Leonarda, and Elizabeth Jacquet de la Guerre will also be highlighted in this series of concerts.

 

Combining stirring performances with groundbreaking scholarship and led by Radcliffe Institute Fellow and Brandeis University Resident Scholar Laury Gutiérrez, the award-winning ensemble La Donna Musicale brings to life the music of female composers nearly forgotten by history, including vibrant works long overlooked or only recently discovered. Passionate arias, moving laments, and delightful instrumental music are a hallmark of their performances.
