In my last blog post on this topic, I wrote that one day I would go through IMSLP.org and try and find the names of female composers who’ve written music for the organ.
This is the list of names I came up with (excluding a few people I already mentioned in other blog posts):
Amy Marcy Beach
Katharine E. Lucke
Mary A. Laselle
Recently, I bought “12 Orgeltänze” (12 organ dances) by Maja Bosch Schildknecht. And I shouldn’t forget to bring up June Nixon – I will probably play at least one of her works in the coming advent/Christmas season.
As always, please contact me if you can add names and/or information. This goes for my previous blog posts on this topic, too🙂
You can find them here:
On December 4th, I’ll play the organ during a service that is being prepared and held by women, and two years ago, I started the “tradition” to play music by female composers for this service, and I will do so again this year. I haven’t made up my mind what I will play, but there’s such a great variety of pieces so I’m sure I can find something. Suggestions welcome🙂
