One-third of this orchestra’s season is music by womenmain
The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic will play music by 60 female composers in 2018/19, amounting to 35% of its repertoire output.
Among the highlights are 20 works by Thea Musgrave (pic) to be played in a single week, the resurrection of Dame Ethel Smyth’s Mass in D major and Lili Boulanger’s Faust et Hélène.
The ever-eclectic Sakari Oramo presides as music director.
You see, it can be done.
