How it all began
Jessica Horsley (initiator and conductor)
Where did the idea for the project come from?
In 2013, somewhere between Prokofiev’s 5th Symphony and Beethoven’s 6th, I thought to myself that it would be nice to conduct something written by a woman. Whether there was any repertoire? (That an internationally-trained musician didn’t know the answer to this question is certainly telling!) I started digging, made some amazing discoveries, and launched the project frauenkomponiert.
We aim to:
• give a voice to women composers and recognition to their work(s)
• spread our enthusiasm for these courageous women and their splendid music
• contribute to the variety of concert programming and thereby enrich the music world
Our frauenkomponiert debut!
