Music Herstory

SalonEra marked the beginning of 2021’s Women’s History Month with a special episode featuring favorite performances from the SalonEra archive by women composers and performers accompanied by intriguing insights from scholars and musicians from past episodes including Elizabeth Weinfield (Jewish Diaspora), Catalina Vicens (Medieval Visionaries), and Michele Kennedy (Women in Music). Re-contextualized with new commentary from SalonEra Associate Producer Shelby Yamin, Music Herstory will feature music by Isabella Leonarda, Leonora Duarte, Maddalena Lombardini Sirmen, and more. Eschewing a generalized view of women in music, this episode spotlights the highly individual personal histories, aesthetic priorities, and identities of women in early music.
