Event description
Katrina Lee, violinist and Alice Allen, cellist, play music by previously ignored Scottish female composers.

About this Event

Cellist Alice Allen and violinist Katrina Lee have been playing together since they met in their early twenties in Glasgow. Their experiences as professional classical musicians led them to question whether the patriarchal conventions of their industry deny women creative privilege, and to look back at the history of these traditions. Working with a researcher through National Libraries of Scotland resources, the duo have found a rich seam of music believed to have been written by women in 18th-century Scotland, many of which are simply credited to anonymous ‘young ladies’. They are now arranging and performing this music, giving these composers’ lives and works the attention they deserve. GAIA’s vision is to give voice to the unheard and unseen female composers of the past, whilesupporting their female contemporaries through cross-genre collaboration and performance
