Abstract

Concentrating on the genre of art song, the project explored the world and works of female composers. The project both compiles a complete history of female contributions to the art song and prepared a recital program using such works exclusively. Also included was a discussion of the difficulties faced by female composers as well as a discussion of societal changes which resulted in the gradually increasing levels of recognition women are receiving for their contributions.
