The women of Baroque

Giovanni Quartet is a professional Malmö based ensemble that plays baroque music on period instruments. During 2015/16 we want to create a concert focusing on female Baroque composers and their music. The project aims to create a varied concert in two acts based on women’s music, but also to give an insight into their lives and their role in society. Instrumental music and songs will be woven together with texts by and about the composers. In Baroque music as well as in classical music generally there is a great imbalance in the representation of female composers.
