We are celebrating the 400th birthday of Venetian composer Barbara Strozzi, with her dazzling secular and sacred arias, and anticipating the 300th birthday in 2020 of Milanese composer Maria Teresa Agnesi. Her virtuosic pastoral arias as well as arias of unrequited love are full of vitality, intense emotional mannerisms and expression, stemming from her skillful use of harmony and sometimes unusual use of the semitone. These 17th- and 18th-century Italian arias are delightfully memorable, dramatically moving, and elegantly virtuosic, all interspersed with striking instrumental music.

La Donna Musicale is a non-profit research, education, and performance organization devoted to the discovery, preservation, and promotion of sacred and secular music by women composers. Combining stirring performances with groundbreaking scholarship, the internationally acclaimed and award-winning ensemble ensemble uses period instruments and historically-informed performance practice to showcase the work of women composers from the Renaissance, Baroque, and Classical periods, as well as contemporary works. Based in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, La Donna Musicale performs throughout the U.S. and internationally.
