Hildegard to be canonized
An image of the Holy Spirit-inspired Hildegard and her scribe from the Rupertsberg Codex des Liber Scivias, c. 1180

December, 2011 — The Vatican announced that Pope Benedict XIV plans to canonize the 12th-century composer, mystic, author, physician and abbess Hildegard von Bingen and then proclaim her a Doctor of the Church in October 2012. Given that she is our company's inspiration, we couldn't be more proud of our namesake!

Lucia Dorelli - violino Andrea Fossà – violoncello Francesca Pellegrini – pianoforte Evi Ruth – pianoforte con una introduzione di Claudio Vedovati Musica Donna vuole porsi all’attenzione del pubblico romano come il primo Festival dedicato alla letteratura musicale femminile. Il progetto scaturisce dall’entusiasmo e dalla ricerca di alcune musiciste, che da anni cercano di colmare il vuoto storico che ha escluso le compositrici dalla letteratura di repertorio. Nel corso dei tre giorni verranno presentate pagine di autrici del IX e XX secolo, di area europea ed angloamericana, da Fanny Mendelssohn ad Alma Mahler, da Alice Smith a Amy Beach, eseguite da vari interpreti in diverse formazioni strumentali. Il progetto si inscrive nella stagione di TestaccioClassica, che la Scuola Popolare di Musica di Testaccio inaugura proprio in occasione del Festival, il 7 marzo, alle ore 19, nella Sala Concerti della Scuola.
