Book Description:

Why is music composed by women so marginal to the standard 'classical' repertoire? In answering this question, the author focuses on the tradition since 1800 and examines practices and attitudes that have led to the exclusion of women composers from the received 'canon' of performed classical works.

Review:

"I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would be so interested in a scholarly book of this type. As a woman composer and a teacher of music, I felt so connected to the ideas in it and, more importantly, utterly empowered by them. I have recommended it to everyone I know!" -- Joan Tower "Important and timely... Valuable to anyone from the high school student to the most accomplished academic." -- Rene Cox Lorraine, MLA Notes "[Citron] succeeds admirably in laying out the fundamental problems and the solutions thus far available... [Her] book is well written and continuously provocative." -- Lydia Goehr, Music and Letters
