Boston-based La Donna Musicale is joined by tenor Aaron
Sheehan, an audience favorite, as they explore the contribution
of Parisian women composers to the French Baroque and
Rococo genres. Recreating the sounds of the Parisian salon,
this delightful group features works by Julie Pinel and other
Parisian women, including Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre.
A sacred work by Antonia Bembo is also included.
The voices, with flute accompaniment, are supported by the
captivating tones of the harpsichord and viola de gamba.
“Kudos to La Donna Musicale as they champion the
unheard music of women composers.”
