Eve's Song

Alice BIshop (Soprano) and Simon Marlow (Piano)

Date: 15 October 2017
Time: 16:00 - 17:30

Location: Leatherhead Methodist Church, Church Road, Leatherhead, KT22 8AY

Details: The music of women composers contains a wealth of talent and a panoply of beautiful compositions. Neglected, even suppressed in their own time, their present day rediscovery presents us with wonderful musical delights and insights. Our programme gives us all, performers and audience alike, a chance to enjoy this rich world of musical gems. Some of the composers are already known, but not usually for their compositions. Clara Schumann was better known as a concert pianist and the wife of Robert. Alma Mahler, wife of Gustav, was initially forbidden to compose by him. Fanny Mendelssohn was required to publish her songs under her brother Felix’s name. Amy Beach was a child prodigy pianist who had to forego her career when she married. Whatever the mistakes of the past, we can now ensure that the gifts of these wonderful composers will continue to be celebrated and enjoyed. Tea and cakes will be served in the interval.
