how she takes the stage - women composing & performing music from the past to the presentSendetermin 07.03.2023 20:00 bis 21:00
Host: Margarethe Maierhofer-Lischka
Gast: Maria Flavia Cerrato
Nowadays, gender equality in the music business has become a hot topic which gets tackled by a lot of different initiatives and actors. For a long time women have been less represented in public music life, both as composers and as performers. In this special episode of Radio Schallfeld, we look at the history and whereabouts of gender equality in regard to contemporary music of all ages. We start from a look into the past and go on into the present. In our discussion we reflect on social roles of women and how they promote or sometimes prohibit standard roles - of "the composer", the "soloist" - and we question how the figure of the "composer-performer" can offer a special possibility for women to redefine their public personae as artists.
Special show guest in this episode is Maria Flavia Cerrato, Italian pianist living and working in Austria. She is ensemble member of Schallfeld and works in her own project promoting solo piano music, chamber music and improvisation with a strong focus of collaborations with female composers and performers.
With music by (a.o.) Clara Schumann, Annea Lockwood, Elisabeth Harnik and more.
