Sounds and Sweet Airs Free download Ú 104 Do we still not hear masterpieces such as Hensel’s piano work The Year Caccini’s arias and Boulanger’s setting of Psalm 130A long overdue celebration of neglected virtuoso. Sounds and Sweet Airs is an excellent book for challenging the traditional male centric classical canon and I expect that chapters will be assigned by music history teachers for a long time to come The book has reflective essays at the front and back but most of the book is biographies each chapter relates the life and works of a woman composer giving them the same slightly hagiographic treatment long given to music s Masters The chapters are than just an overview of facts they highlight and explore the ways their society s and OUR society s views of women affected their careers productivity and relationships Perhaps the most surprising revelation for me was when Beer pointed out that we know next to nothing about a particular composer s life as a mother because it s a current expectation to include motherhood in any biography of a woman whereas in the composer s time it was considered irrelevant That doesn t mean it was irrelevant to her just that people recording this history didn t see it necessary to include in the story of her composingThough the title presents the subjects as forgotten women and occasionally as composers you ve never heard of that s of course dependent on the background of the reader I think this book will be fully readable for someone who has never even heard of Clara Schumann As for me I m a musicologist so I knew of many but not everyone I had studied Caccini and Stozzi from a seminar on musical women in the Renaissance and as one who s dissertation focused on the 19th century I was already uite familiar with Hensel and Schumann though the focus of this monograph gave me new perspective on them but I ll admit I d never heard of lisabeth Jacuet de la Guerre Marianna Martines and Elizabeth Maconchy which is a real shame Fortunately Beer provides a listening list to acuaint the reader to the composers most successful andor most characteristic works as her descriptions often make the reader thirsty to hear themBeer has written a wonderful book that should become a standard in any Intro to Musicology course as well as a starting point for research into any of the included composers The prose is readable the details relevant and interesting I learned a lot and I hope I carry the lessons into my blog writing thinking about how I present the various aspects domestic life childhood career of composers of any gender

Sounds and Sweet Airs Free download Ú 104 Sounds and Sweet Airs reveals the hidden stories of eight remarkable composers taking the reader on a journey from seventeenth century Medici Florence to London in the BlitzExpl. A most valuable addition to musical biography and analysis I see this becoming a standard in studies of women composers The author has chosen 8 outstanding examples from Renaissance Italy Caccini and Strozzi to the France of the Sun King Jacuet de la Guerre to the AustroGerman tradition Martines Hensel n e Mendelssohn Schumann n e Wieck to the 20th century Boulanger and Maconchy and written in detail but accessibly The author also surrounded these women with a sense of their times and culture The asides such as the bit on high heeled shoes in the Strozzi section or on Maconchy s one act opera the The Sofa were delightful Boulanger s chapter impressed me the most such a talented lady who died tragically young and who composed such luminescent music The Endnote was fascinating giving us a glimpse into what made these women special someone who recognized their genius no other word for it someone who guided and taught them music skills as performer or as composer friends or family that supported them a public or private platform for their gift to shine forthI appreciated all the supplementary material but WHY did the book lack any index To me as a former librarian a good index is mandatory for any nonfiction work WHY are there no discography suggestions for the woman composers mentioned in the introduction I see these women are mentioned with only a paragraph or two in the Introduction which is fine Discography entries for them could be set apart with some kind of marking asterisk before them I would especially like suggestions about Nun Kassia a 9th century Byzantine monastic for whom we have the earliest surviving written music and the 20th century Rebecca Clarke Her prize winning violin sonata was thought to be entered by a man I hope these black and white portraits will be color plates in the published edition Maconchy herself tells us whenever you hear a piece of music you have no way of knowing if the composer is male or female Clarke s contest entry being an example Highly recommended Thanks to LibraryThing for an ARC in exchange for my honest review
