Naomi Woo Conducts Haydn & Brahms

This concert celebrates the impact – past, present and future – of women in classical music during this International Women’s Month. Where would composers like Mozart, Mendelssohn and Schumann have been without Nannerl, Fanny and Clara?

RBC Assistant Conductor Naomi Woo leads the WSO at the podium and at the piano with works by Haydn and Brahms, as well as a Piano Concerto by Marianne von Martinez. Martinez was a child prodigy whose harpsichord performance practice was compared to the style of C.P.E. Bach, and whose compositions were so well regarded in her time that some scholars have suggested that Mozart modelled one of his masses after her own. Contemporary English composer Anna Clyne is also represented in this concert with a work composed for Marin Alsop and the Taki Concordia, an all-woman orchestra. The work draws inspiration and its title from the poem “A Woman Speaks” by Audre Lorde.
