The Dutch Chamber Music Ensemble is presenting a program about women. In every composition that is played by this completely female ensemble, the woman plays the leading role. The role that the woman plays varies; it is about the woman who sings or who is sung, a sonata in minor for the deceased mother, the woman as a composer and the woman as a muse. Listen to masterpieces by Purcell, Mozart, Clara & Robert Schumann, and Henriëtte Bosmans, among others.
