Fin-de-Siècle Sounds Will Be Brought Back to Life at Curtis

Flautist, Mimi Stillman, will present “Women Pioneers of American Music,” a program put on by Dolce Suono Ensemble, for which she serves as artistic and executive director.

The program, on Jan. 24 at 3 p.m. at Field Concert Hall at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, PA, will give those in attendance an opportunity to explore early American concert music by focusing on three female composers from the late 19th and early 20th centuries — Amy Beach, Marion Bauer and Ruth Crawford Seeger — who were considered pioneers of American music.

It will also feature works by contemporary composers Jennifer Higdon and Andrea Clearfield, including a world premiere.
