This is the Spotify playlist that features all the 116 composers listed above: 1200 Years of Women Composers. (1012 tracks, 3.7 days) Sorted by the birth years of the composers. It's a Spotify anthology of women composers, as well as a brief history of western classical music. It's really fascinating to hear music constantly reinventing itself from the monophonic and deeply spiritual medieval chant of Hildegard all the way into Higdon's lush and ultra-modern percussion concerto. This is my personal favourite playlist so far, hope you enjoy it too;)

If you appreciate what women and music brought to this world, please help to spread the word about this post, by retweeting this in twitter, sharing in your blog, facebook, google reader or via email. After all, it is the feminine side of mankind, I believe, that gives us the beautiful things in life.

  9. Classical fans! If you appreciate the music women have brought to this world, please log in to the Spotify Community and add your voice to the 1,400+ people asking Spotify to SHOW THE COMPOSER'S NAME on every track.


    Finding music by women is hard enough -- and made so much harder when composers' names are not displayed.

    Please log in and give 'Kudos' to my petition there.
