Legendary Women

January 25 @ 2:00 am - 4:00 pm

A concert featuring first U.S. performances of music by two women who bucked the mores of their times and produced important bodies of work in spite of the prevailing prejudice against women as composers. Mel Bonis (1858-1937), a contemporary of her compatriots Claude Debussy and Ernest Chausson, wrote evocative music simultaneously Romantic and Impressionistic. The Philharmonic follows up its 2018 U.S. premiere of Ruth Gipps’ (1921-1999) Symphony No. 2 with the like premiere of her Symphony No. 4, considered by many her masterpiece. Also on the program are selections from operas in which the central female characters are the stuff of legends: Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Leonore” Overture No. 3, and a sampling of arias from French operas with local treasure, mezzo-soprano Jenny Knapp.
