Lunchtime Concert: Violin and Piano Music by Women Composers

  • This event has passed.
Margarita & Richard UPDATED BANNER

Margarita Jackson – Violin
Josie Yau – Piano

From romance to political awakening, here is a smorgasbord by female composers presented by Violinist Margarita Jackson and Pianist Josie Yau.

Many thanks to Josie for stepping in last minute, in Richard Mapps place, to accompany Margarita Jackson.

The 19th Century was ambivalent towards female violinists. On the one hand they were tolerated as soloists, on the other they were denied participation in professional orchestras and violin playing was considered improper and too masculine for women. In spite of this women continued to compose and perform in private circles.


Lili Boulanger (1893 – 1918)
Barbara Heller (1936 – )
Emilie Mayer (1812 – 1883)
Grażyna Bacewicz (1909 – 1969)
Margarita Jackson (1949 – )
Luise Adolpha Le Beau (1850 – 1927)
