Synopsis: Describes the lives and accomplishments of ten women composers who challenged opposition because of their gender, including Clara Schumann, Florence Price, and Ethel Smyth
From School Library Journal:
Grade 6-9-- The challenges of being a female in the music world are discussed as the lives of ten talented women are examined. The brief biographies are arranged chronologically beginning with the 17th-century composer Barbara Strozzi and concluding with the 20th-century composer and performer Laurie Anderson. Also included are Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel, Clara Schumann, Ethel Smyth, Amy Beach, Florence Price, Vivian Fine, Joan Tower, and Ellen Taafe Zwilich. Each biography covers the subjects' childhoods, education, and struggles for acceptance in a male-dominated field. Suggestions for listening and further reading are included. Unfortunately, the writing is uneven, ranging from scholarly to didactic and watered down. While there is a lack of information for this age level on this subject, this book has limited appeal. --Beth Irish, Orange Public Library, CA
