Play Women Composers 2 is out now
Every year through the month of March, millions around the world celebrate Women's History Month – commemorating and celebrating of the vital role of women in our lives.
As a magazine we are proud to have featured (and continue to feature) so many incredible women composers inside our publication; from composers like Clara Schumann and Cécile Chaminade, to pianists such as Yuja Wang and Isata Kanneh-Mason.
After the success of our digital special, Play Women Composers, last year, we thought that Women's History Month was a fitting time to release Part 2! This brand-new digital special features 30+ pages of scores filled with works from Freixas, Chaminade, Beach, C Schumann, Farrenc, Hensel, Bonis and Spanswick, alongside how-to-play lessons and plenty of digital content.
