One of the earliest composers for whom we have a name is a woman: Sappho of Lesbos. The first composer for whom we have a biography, is Saint Hildegard von Bingen. Arguably writing music for as long as their male counterparts, women composers have often been overlooked, if not deliberately neglected. Rarely accorded equal status with their male counterparts, composers of the feminine gender have usually been labelled and set aside in a category of their own. Explore the richly diverse music written by women across countless centuries including Hildegard von Bingen, Clara Schumann, Alice Smith, Amy Beach, Lili Boulanger and Joan Tower.
