OUT NOW | Menuetto Classics Records' New CD: "Introduction to Female Composers"

The disc features a large variety of pieces composed by female composers including Clara Schumann, Lili Boulanger, Germaine Tailleferre, and Fanny Mendelssohn

Menuetto Classics Records announced the release of their new album, entitled "Introduction to Female Composers."

The disc was recorded by international soloists and ensembles including American violinist Aaron Rosand, the Orchestre des Concerts Lamoureux, and the Winchester Cathedral Choir.

"This release is meant to cover the full history of female composers and their output, from Hildegard von Bingen up through contemporaries such as Sofia Gubaidulina," Nick Humphrey, Product Manager at Countdown Media and the creator of the album told The Violin Channel.

"2020 celebrated the centennial of women’s suffrage in the United States and we are pleased that we can produce releases to celebrate that monumental achievement and shed more light on female composers overall.

"We hope, of course, that listeners' appreciation for the music produced by female composers not only grows, but also that one notices the contributions have been diverse and enriching — and have sadly not often been at the forefront of music history alongside their male counterparts."
