By Barbara Moser and Thomas Albertus Irnberger. By Amy Marcy Beach, Dora Pejacevic, Luise Adolpha Le Beau, Maria-Theresia Paradis, and Pauline Viardot-Garcia. Classical. Hybrid SACD. Gramola #GRAM99153. Published by Gramola (NX.GRAM99153).

Until late into the 20th century, being composer was not a valid choice of profession for women for diverse social and political reasons, leading to a rather small number of female composers in music history. ""Ladies' Night"" with Thomas Albertus Irnberger, violin and Barbara Moser, piano turns a spotlight on a number of these composers of different countries and makes a late but all the more important contribution to a more just relationship between the genders. Mamy of the women portrayed in this album like Amy Beach (U.S.A.), Luise Adolpha le Beau (Germany), Pauline Viardot-Garcia (France), Amanda Rontgen-Maier (Sweden), Maria-Theresia Paradis (Austria) and Dora Pejacevic (Croatia), were quite successful musicians as well.
