Thea Derks

Between changing nappies & doing the dishes

By Thea Derks

A lecture by musicologist and publicist Thea Derks examining the visibility (and invisibility) of female composers on the concert stage and in written history. Derks will be taking her audience through a thousand years of music history in which she will, of course, also refer to the unique positions occupied by Clara Schumann and Fanny Mendelssohn. This lecture will be embellished with musical examples.
