Produktbeschreibung

“If you have never seen it, only imagine a lady blowing a trumpet, horn or trombone, or even paying the bassoon. What a comical effect is conjured up by the very idea!”. Joseph von Wasielewski, a well-known violinist and biographer of Schumann, was by no means alone in holding such an opinion. The same reservations extended to female flautists, clarinettists, cellists and organists, while female violinists, despite initial opposition, eventually managed to make careers in the course of the century. Female instrumentalists’ technique, repertoire, training, professional opportunities and travel were also subjects of lively discussion in the 19th century.
This collection of sources allows us to trace the many-sided and very contradictory arguments. It includes 167 German, English and French texts from musical magazines, daily newspapers, monographs and collections of essays. As well as the basic arguments, themes include the piano, strings, harp and guitar, organ, wind instruments, and the gradual development of women’s orchestras - a logical consequence of the fact that women (with the exception of a few harpists) were still excluded from other orchestras.
