    PDF Anna Beer ´ Sounds and Sweet Airs eBook ¸ Sounds and eBook ´ sounds download, sweet free, airs mobile, Sounds and mobile, Sounds and Sweet Airs ePUBI won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway and I was unsure what to expect As it's not something I would usually pick up I loved the way that Anna Beer explored the lives of 8 different women composers and performers of Classical music All of which I had never even heard of Even whilst I was studying GCSE Music I was not taught of these extraordinary women As I studied their names in the contents list I realised that I was only taught of men composers This is something that I think they should change in the National Curriculum I thought it was great how the author included a Further Listening section at the end of the book allowing the reader to hear for themselves how wonderfully talented these women are As someone who plays Piano myself I found the stories of these women extremely inspiring And it's made me want to explore my talent further

    PDF Anna Beer ´ Sounds and Sweet Airs eBook ¸ Sounds and eBook ´ sounds download, sweet free, airs mobile, Sounds and mobile, Sounds and Sweet Airs ePUB Sounds and Sweet Airs is an excellent book for challenging the traditional male centric classical canon and I expect that chapters will be assigned by music history teachers for a long time to come The book has reflective essays at the front and back but most of the book is biographies each chapter relates the life and works of a woman composer giving them the same slightly hagiographic treatment long given to music's Masters The chapters are than just an overview of facts; they highlight and explore the ways their society's— and OUR society's—views of women affected their careers productivity and relationships Perhaps the most surprising revelation for me was when Beer pointed out that we know next to nothing about a particular composer's life as a mother because it's a current expectation to include motherhood in any biography of a woman whereas in the composer's time it was considered irrelevant That doesn't
