Exploring Musicembraces works written in honor of, and by, great women — Masses for the Virgin Mary, Joan Tower’s Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman, and songs by Clara Schumann. This week we feature women performers and composers going back as far as we can find them in the history books — the Benedictineabbess-composer Hildegard of Bingen;Mozart’s friend, the Spanish composer MariaTheresa von Paradis; a couple of remarkable Polish composers around the time of Chopin; and on toShulamit Ran.Performers will includeTeresaCarreño,Hilary Hahn, and we hope to squeeze in Lorraine Hunt Lieberson singing”Willst du dein Herz mir schenken,”byBachperhaps. This aria has a puzzling authorship;it was found copied in a foreign hand in AnnaMagdalenaBach’s notebook, and has atheme of secret love.
