It is an amalgamation of private and shared, personal and cultural features that are shaped by the present and the past, here and elsewhere. So we can ask, what is a woman’s voice? What is the performer’s own voice?
The concert approaches womanhood from the perspective of the artist’s personal experiences and a wider historical context. It gives a voice to women who lived in different times and their pieces representing various genres. The woman is the one who acts and plays the main role – she is not just a victim trampled by patriarchal history.
