The dynamic, compelling artists who make up this duo are well known for championing the music of emerging composers, in tandem with works by those who are internationally renowned, as well as reviving forgotten composers from the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic eras. Featuring female-identifying composers whose output spans some 350 years, this season-concluding program takes its title from the tragic story of Anna Maria Mozart. “Nannerl,” as she was called, was a child prodigy. She toured Europe with her brother Wolfgang Amadeus, even receiving top billing over him. But after turning eighteen, she was prevented from performing or composing, and remained inactive as a musician until after her brother’s and father’s deaths. This program is a tribute to female artists forced into silence and re-examines, rediscovers, and promotes the creative productions of female-identifying composers.
