Women in Musik

FRIDAY, AUGUST 20 | 8:00pm

Rain Date: SATURDAY, August 21 | 8:00 PM

1600 Art Museum Dr, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202

Fierce female performers and composers will be at the forefront at Women in Musik. Marking just over 100 years since the 19th Amendment gave women a voice at the ballot box, CCO will look at the voice women have in classical repertoire. Opening the program will be a work by violinist and composer Jessie Montgomery, Starburst, which describes a changing galaxy where stars are born at an incredibly fast rate. 2019 United States Artist Fellow in Music, composer Reena Esmail’s Teen Murti conjures a fascinating and unfamiliar sound world based on Indian classical music traditions. Gabriella Smith’s Brandenburg Interstices brings Bach’s fifth concerto into the 21st century. “Preciously gifted” (Gramophone) Grammy-nominated violinist Caroline Goulding will round out Summermusik with Mozart’s “Turkish” fifth violin concerto, one of the few examples where he brings together different cultures in a work. This concert will be a musical dialogue between centuries, styles and cultures – a reflection on the past as the source code of the music so many female composers create today.
