An Enlightened Heart

Galliarda’s ‘An Enlightened Heart’ project highlights the music and performing traditions of women in the eighteenth-century. With the inclusion of new pieces for early instruments commissioned by group members from young female composers, we connect with the developing tradition of female composers today. We aim to raise awareness of the music, and the often difficult position of women as independent composers, multi-instrumentalists and singers in the age of the enlightenment. Galliarda’s project will encompass four live concerts in February/March 2023, a recording, and the video of a performance.
