Variety and experimentation, energy and intensity are the threads that connect the five women composers featured on this program. From 1929, when Amy Beach was creating an American style for the first time by incorporating Inuit melodies into her music, to Keyla Orozcos Cuban rhythms infiltrating her work at the end of the century, this program delights the audience with its sheer range of sounds and styles. From Joan Towers contemplative moments to Julia Wolfes impassioned outbursts, the Del Sol String Quartet present an exciting concert celebrating the achievements of women of the Americas.
