Published: 3 March 2015

Next Sunday is International Women’s Day, and BBC Radio 3 is marking the occasion with a weekend of programmes celebrating female composers, including live concerts and discussion panels, documentaries and debate. Two Southampton professors will be taking part.

On Saturday March 7 (0900-1215), Professor David Owen Norris will join Andrew McGregor on CD Review  for the regular Building a Library feature, focussing on Clara Schumann’s Piano Trio. On Sunday March 8 (1400-1500), Professor Laurie Stras will be in conversation with Lucie Skeaping on the Early Music Show, exploring the life and works of the 17th-century Baroque singer and composer, Barbara Strozzi. A short preview of this broadcast is already available. The full weekend’s programme is here. The BBC website is also now hosting a dedicated section, “Celebrating Women Composers”.
