    This unique book brings together for the first time a rich selection of firsthand accounts of women throughout history who have been composers, conductors, and performers of music. There are many women prominent in music today- one has only to think of Antonia Brico, Sarah Caldwell, Beverly Sills, and a host of other well-known singers and intrumentalists- but perhaps less well known are the important contributions of women to music in the past. Such figures as the pianist Clara Schumann, the singers Lillian Nordica and Marian Anderson, the educator Nadia Boulanger, and the composer Ruth Crawford-Seeger constitute a rich historical legacy.

    Women in Music ranges from medieval nunneries to contemporary women musicians, providing vivid accounts of women's roles in music. The readings are drawn from such varied sources as correspondence, diaries and autobiographies, newspaper accounts and reviews of performances, poetry and passages from novels, accounts of travels, and interviews. A rich selection of illustrations adds an additional dimenstion to this anthology.
