The 19th and 20th century was a hard period for female composers to show themselves. Prejudice and social aspects were the cause of this. Even nowadays these female composers don;t receive the credit they deserve. With compositions by Amy Beach, Clara Schumann and Mel Bonis you will hear three females from different cultures (American, French and German). Clara Schumann can be seen as the mother of generations of female composers to come. In that perspective, Mel Bonis and Amy Beach were her successors.
