New Women Composers in 2019

In March 2017, we published a list with 800 women composers who appear in RISM records. In 2019 alone, we have had over 50 new names, so in total there are over 1,000. As a sampling, here are 17 of them.

Some of the new ones are from the records we have imported from ICCU:
Cecilia Arditto (1966*)
Joanna Bruzdowicz (1943*)
Carolyn Jean Hawley (1934*)
Patrizia Montanaro (1956*)
Lucia Ronchetti (1963*)
Maria Gabriella Zen (1957*)

We have some new names from Argentinia:
Adela del Valle (1897*)
Julia Puigdengolas (ca. 1875-ca. 1950)

There are some new printed music editions by the following composers:
Mary Dering (1629-1704)
Francesca Mancuso (16/17 century)
Lucia Quinciani (ca. 1566*)
Claudia Sessa (ca. 1570-ca. 1619)

From the collections of the Universität der Künste in Berlin:
Elfriede Koch (19/20 century)
Clara Angela Macirone (1821-1895)
