About the event

The Third concert of the 2020 Bowral Autumn Music Festival features music by three famous female composers: Fanny Mendelssohn, Clara Schumann and Amy Beach. Amy Beach was one of the most celebrated composers of the 19th and 20th centuries, but have you heard of her? Like Fanny Mendelssohn, who was banned by her father from publishing her compositions, and Clara Schumann, who due to social constraints believed ‘a woman must not desire to compose’, Amy Beach was also told her distinguished concert career must stop once she wed her husband. In spite of these restrictions, these three remarkable women wrote over 700 works between them. BAMF’s Ensemble in Residence, Acacia Quartet and Pianist Aura Go are proud to dedicate their concert to these exceptional women, all brilliant pianists and composers of their day.
