Why No Women Mozarts?

Formed in 2009, the Marsyas Trio is the UK’s leading flute, cello and piano ensemble whose programming illuminates forgotten masterpieces whilst inspiring a generation of new works through commissioning and recording projects.

Here the trio invites the audience to imagine the richness of repertoire we would hold today if the prodigiously talented sisters and wives of the likes of Mozart, Mendelssohn and Schumann had been encouraged or even permitted to have careers equal to those of their male contemporaries.
