Synopsis : This collection of new interviews with twenty-five accomplished female composers substantially advances our knowledge of the work, experiences, compositional approaches, and musical intentions of a diverse group of creative individuals.

Critique: "This collection of interviews with women composers presents an exquisite picture of the power and beauty of human creativity. Each woman speaks with an eloquence, a force, or a poetry that distinguishes her as a vibrant, compelling artist."--Kristina G. Boerger, associate professor of music and director of choral activities, Carroll University "If nothing else, this substantial compendium of interview with 25 women composters offers vital evidence of the sheer diversity of compositional activity - much of it, sadly, hidden from European ears - currently to be found in the United States. But these 'conversations' range across more than matters of technique, style and process. Instead, what emerges is a telling exploration of the role of women composing in the US across the last half-century and more, and a discussion of the status afforded them in a still largely androcentric industry... With a background in performance and academia, Jennifer Kelly brings an informed sensitibity to bear that prompts much revealing commentary by her individual subjects in an intelligently structured volume... it is an essential read." - Classical Music
