Attilia Kiyoko Cernitori presents her new double CD:
Dedicated to ANNA MAGDALENA WILCKEN-BACH and to all women composers in history.
In collaboration with the Cultural Association "Firenze al Femminile".
The profits will be donated to ARTEMISIA, for helping their cause in raising awareness of violence against women.

"Historically, women in music have been considered unusual and sometimes unwelcome. Now compositions of previous centuries are being heard again, and female composers, performers and musical directors are beginning to get accepted. However they still seem to receive a critical approach which relates to gender rather than ability."
Diana Ambache, Women of Note
Ms. Cernitori is excited to announce the premiere of her first music composition, OTTAVIA, which will be held in Florence on February 27th!
The original performance has been written for ensemble [piano, violin, cello and recorder], plus reciter, one more voice and magnetic tape.
Text by Sandra Landi, a renowned novelist and essayist.
Action painting throughout the performance by the artist Cinzia Fiaschi.
Soroptimist Club Firenze Due and Societa' Dante Alighieri made this event possible.
"New World Cello"

Ethel Smyth Cello Sonata
Do you know Ethel Smyth?
Ever heard her fascinating story and inspiring music?

Eugene Gates:
"Smyth's music was seldom evaluated as simply the work of a composer among composers, but as that of a "woman composer." This worked to keep her on the margins of the profession, and, coupled with the double standard of sexual aesthetics, also placed her in a double bind. On the one hand, when she composed powerful, rhythmically vital music, it was said that her work lacked feminine charm; on the other, when she produced delicate, melodious compositions, she was accused of not measuring up to the artistic standards of her male colleagues."
