Throughout history, women were often discouraged from or denied the pursuit of musical education or achievement. This performance delivers diverse repertoire by gifted female composers. Selections include Variations by Melanie Bonis (1858-1937), a prolific composer and self-taught pianist; the unique and unusual Triptych by world-renowned Dianne Goolkasian Rahbee, b.1938; and the spirited dance tune, Three Fantastic Variations on Lilliburlerlo by Madeleine Dring (1923-1977).
