Due to the tireless work of musicologists, a rich legacy of music by women has been, and continues to be, unearthed. The tide is, however, beginning to turn and we are hearing more female composers. But how can we, indeed how should we, write these composers' lives? In the first Weinrebe Lecture of 2019, Anna Beer will share her insights into gender, creativity and life-writing. Anna is a biographer and the author of 'Sounds and Sweet Airs: the Forgotten Women of Classical Music'.
