An appropriately named programme for our times, when music must be experienced safely behind the doors of our homes, Behind Closed Doors is a programme devised by Ensemble Dagda telling a story of the women composers, who led flourishing careers in seventeenth century Italy and France.
Beginning with the musica secreta of the Ferrarese court, women’s compositions were often heard behind closed doors, whether in courts, homes or cloisters and their composers excelled at creating dramatic scenes for chamber music combinations of voice, violins and continuo.
This programme features compositions that range from settings in private salons to royal courts, and from harpsichord preludes to operatic extracts, displaying the diversity of music produced by women composers of the era.
