Wouldn’t it be wonderful if, alongside much-loved and listened-to pieces of the classical canon, unknown, surprising and inspiring works suddenly appeared from all epochs of music history? The members of ensemble reflektor have turned this thought experiment into reality by completing in-depth research. Because these “shadow works” do exist – they were composed by women. Often well-known and even celebrated during their lifetime, these female composers gradually faded into obscurity in the patriarchally-oriented concert realm. First with a small line-up, then a larger one, and ending with the triumphant symphony by the Romantic composer Louise Farrenc, the independent ensemble atmospherically stages the reawakening of a hidden side of Western music in the Great Hall.
