Two concerts in person at Hanna Boys Center. One Livestream concert.

In this concert VMMF takes a look back at our successful 5th season in Sonoma: The Salonnieres: Women of Power and Influence, bringing back some the leading women composer/performers of the Romantic era. Clara Schumann and Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel were very close to their husband and brother, respectively. Love was at the core of these relationships, but they were not without competitive strain. Due to the sexism of their time, these women were prevented from achieving the full success they deserved. This concert brings their original voices to the fore. Like Clara, French composer Louise Farrenc also enjoyed a career of concertizing as a pianist, and together with her husband Aristide Farrenc, started one of France’s most successful publishing houses.
