THIS IS NOT A FAD!

An old tweet on the Hartford Women Composers Fest (Connecticut, USA) account, made us think about how gender differences still exist in our society and how programming music by women composers should be the norm.

While a past in which the role of women in music – especially in the field of composition – has been so marginal cannot be changed, we have a responsibility to eradicate any type of discrimination, including gender, and lay the foundations for new generations of artists.

This Is Not a Fad! also seeks to reflect upon the question of gender in music. Are there features that demonstrate that a work has been composed by a man or a woman? Except for voice, is gender difference appreciated when a piece is performed by a woman or a man? Do female audiences listen in the same way as male audiences?
