We are delighted to inform you that the first in our four-volume series Analytical Essays on Music by Women Composers has now been published by Oxford University Press. The collection, Concert Music, 1960–2000, includes chapters on music by Ursula Mamlok by Joseph N. Straus, Norma Beecroft by Christoph Neidhöfer, Joan Tower by Jonathan W. Bernard, Sofia Gubaidulina by Judy Lochhead, Chen Yi by Nancy Rao, Kaija Saariaho by John Roeder, Libby Larsen by Brenda Ravenscroft, and Elisabeth Lutyens by Laurel Parsons.
We invite you to peruse these studies and to use them to launch your own explorations into this rich and rewarding repertoire.
