"...Three impressively skilled musicians, all capable of holding their own against other composers of their time, who had to contend with a prevailing public opinion that the very idea of a woman composer was either inconceivable or ludicrous (or both)...Today we can listen to all of the selections on this recording with less sexist prejudices and accept that each of these composers had her own distinctive voice." - Stephen Smoliar, examiner.com

This exciting CD includes works by three influential composers. Amy Beach belonged to the group known as the "Boston Six", who preceded the generation of Copland, Gershwin, etc. Lili Boulanger is one of the most important composers, and Rebecca Clarke is, in this country, certainly well known. She was [also] one of the first women who completed regular formal music studies as a career. - Naxos Direct, (translated from German)
