Description

Two talks about women composers and conductors in those male dominated fields, broadcast on KPFA on February 16 and February 23, 1972. Includes excerpts from women's compositions. From the folio: "Women in the fields of composition and conducting are like icebergs floating in male-infested waters. Only about 10% are visible. Barbara Kraft and Varda Ullman have already done some mind-boggling aqueous soundings; they plan to lower depth charges to see what else surfaces. Warning: This program may be hazardous to the listing balance of the musical establishment." Part 1 includes recordings by Maria Agata Szymanowska (1789-1831,Poland), Grażyna Bacewicz (1909-1969, Poland),Lili Boulanger (1893-1918, France), Germaine Tailleferre (1892-1983, France), Elisabeth Lutyens (1906-1983, England), and Thea Musgrave (b. 1928, Englad). Produced and hosted by Barbara Kraft and Varda Ullman. Part 2 includes more contemporary Los Angeles-area composers including Ruth Crawford Seeger (1901-1953), Mary Ann Eusler[sp?](in studio), Gladys Nordenstrom (b. 1924), and Victoria Bond (in studio, b. 1945).
