The title of the concert is a quote from Lotta Wennäkoski’s Valossa. Many would have had a lot to write about, but the conditions weren’t right.
This concert presents music written by female composers: both music from the 19th century and works by living composers. Fanny Hensel is probably best known as the sister of Felix Mendelssohn, although she was a very capable musician herself. Amy Beach was the first female composer in the United States who published a symphony (Gaelic Symphony 1896) and she is seen as the first successful female composer in her country. The program also features works by contemporary composers: Galina Grigorjeva (born at Krim in Ukraine), Julia Wolfe (USA) and Lotta Wennäkoski (Finland).
