Celebrate International Women’s Day with music and words from inspirational women, including a world premiere commission for taonga puoro and orchestra by Ruby Solly, work by Pulitzer Prize winner Julia Wolfe, and more.

This vibrant programme highlights women composers ranging from the mystic brilliance of 12th-century pioneer Hildegard von Bingen, to multi-faceted musician, writer, and taonga puoro practitioner Ruby Solly (Kai Tahu, Waitaha, Kāti Māmoe).

Historically, music by women has been considered ‘lost’ or ‘forgotten’ – or to tell it like it is, actively marginalised and systemically oppressed. Shoulder to Shoulder champions work by established Aotearoa composers Dorothy Ker and Rachael Morgan; the only female member of France’s Les Six, Germaine Tailleferre; and international living composers from India, Iran, and the United States – Reena Esmail, Aida Shirazi, and Julia Wolfe in her score for orchestra and electric guitar. Interspersed with these works, the powerful voices of women are also expressed through poetry, text and spoken word.

Credits:
Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra
Conductor: Elena Schwarz
Taonga Puoro: (Ariana Tikao, Ruby Solly, Te Kahureremoa Taumata, Khali Meari Materoa)
Harp: Ingrid Baue
