Women in Classical Music

Women in Classical Music

As with most creative endeavours, the history of classical music has been written primarily by, and about, men. This playlist—a mix of styles, moods and eras—ventures to highlight the work of female composers and performers, bringing some much-needed balance to our conception of not just what defines classical music, but who. We regularly update these selections. If you like a piece, add it to your library.
