Weinrebe Lecture 1, Notes from the Silence: writing the lives of women composers
Tuesday 22 January - 5:30pm to 7:00pm

Due to the tireless work of musicologists such as Anna Beer, a rich legacy of music by women has been, and continues to be, unearthed. The tide is, however, beginning to turn and we are hearing more female composers. But how can we, indeed how should we, write these composers' lives? In the first Weinrebe Lecture of 2019, Anna will share her insights into gender, creativity and life-writing.
