Reclaiming the Muse
Sophie Fuller, Nicola LeFanu
Harwood Academic Publishers, 1994 - Music - 349 pages
"Reclaiming the Muse" places emphasis on the fine musical contributions of these women composers, rather than the gender of the group. The book will help to achieve a more balanced programming, in which music which has been unheard or neglected until now will be brought into the repertoire and get the hearing it deserves. It will also help students to obtain a fully dimensional view of the musical tradition which reflects the contributions of women as well as men.
This unique reference work is part of the growing movement to create opportunities for the music of women composers. The book is devoted to living composers from Australia, Great Britain, and New Zealand. The only book to provide an examination of the musical contributions of female composers living today, this volume provides a place where the composers can speak for themselves.
