COMPOSITION TODAY. AROUND THE WORLD WITH THE JURORS: interviews with some members of the International Jury of the “Women Composers” Competition conducted by Anna Menichetti (Radio Rai 3).
On our YouTube and social channel, at 5 p.m. (Italian time)
Anna Menichetti (Radio Rai3) and Chiara Dino (Corriere della Sera) meet, for a tea, some famous female composers: Concetta Anastasi, Sonia Bo and Patrizia Montanaro. They will talk about their experience and about the role women have, today, in composition and conducting. Francesca Lazzeroni will also discuss about the theme of female entrepreneurship in the artistic-cultural field and about Amat’s projects for women in music.Musical performances by female composers will alternate during the conversation.
The event is part of the “L’Eredità delle Donne” Festival.
The femfestival is a project aimed to overcome the gender gap and to enhance the contribution
of women in the field of music composition by activating a global and multicultural network of female artists.
It is a musical festival for women composers from all over the world. In the past, little space have women had in composition and conducting, but in recent years this started to change; and it is fundamental that this positive trend continues also in the generations to come.
The planned activities and workshops are also designed to facilitate collaboration between female composers, encouraging the development of multicultural contributions. This year, a scholarship will be offered to an African artist who will be hosted in Florence and participate in the composition laboratory activities. We believe that today, more than ever, it is essential open up cultural frontiers and have the courage to broaden our artistic horizons.
