BBC PROMS SURVEY 2019

For some years Women in Music (UK) has been doing a survey of the numbers of women represented in the BBC PROMS season.  The Proms is the largest classical music festival in the world. This year there are 58 main evening orchestral concerts, as well as chamber music concerts, daytime events and late-night concerts. The audiences in the Royal Albert Hall are of many thousands, and all the concerts are broadcast, many on television.

The figures for women in the 2019 BBC Proms season are:

Composers:                    29/160  (18%)              [Last year was 21/133]

Living composers:         20/59    (33%)             [Last year was 17/43]

BBC Commissions

(or co-commissions):     5/15      (33%)              [Last year was 12/19]

Conductors:                    7/60      (11%)               [Last year was 4/58]

As for last year I have made a new category for the number of living composers whose works are substantial (more than 15 mins) and are featured in main evening concerts. This is because many of the new commissions are for short pieces in chamber concerts or “family” concerts.

Substantial works by living composers: 2/9  (22%)                    [last year was 5/14] (36%)

The women composers are: Lera Auerbach, Grazyna Bacewicz, Sally Beamish, Zosha Di Castri, Sofia Gubaidulina, Fanny Hensel, Hildegard of Bingen, Dorothy Howell, Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, Joanna Lee, Mica Levi, Elizabeth Maconchy, Thea Musgrave, Laura Mvula, Carly Paradis, Ailie Robertson, Iris ter Schiphorst, Clara Schumann, Maddelena Laura Sirmen, Alexia Sloane, Linda Catlin Smith, Barbara Strozzi, Dobrinka Tabakova, Outi Tarkiainen, Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Freya Waley-Cohen, Errollyn Wallen, Judith Weir, Stevie Wishart. (and Alissa Firsova,  no details given)

The conductors are: Karina Caneliakis, Elim Chan, Jessica Cottis, Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla, Sofi Jeannin, Dalia Stasevska, Nathalie Stutzmann.

To analyse the results:  These figures maintain the substantially better figures of last year. Rather fewer composers but more women conductors (reflecting the fact that there are more women conductors making their mark in the world generally). It seems that the marked improvement of the figures last year is set to continue. The BBC Proms season has always reflected, or been better than, the proportion of women composers and conductors in other concert series around the world. Now we need to look at what is happening elsewhere.

Jenny Fowler

NOTE: To maintain consistency with past years, I take my figures from the BBC booklet, rather than the website, which may be slightly different.

Anyone is welcome to quote these statistics, but please mention the source. The figures for past Proms seasons are also available on the Women in Music (UK) website: http://www.womeninmusic.org.uk/

'Celebrating the bi-centenary of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s birth, Britten Sinfonia and Independent Opera present the first public performance of Joby Talbot’s new cantata, A Sheen of Dew on Flowers. For this major new commission from Independent Opera, Talbot sets rare and sensual poetry from across several different millennia. A radiant and lyric score, inspired by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s devoted partnership, brings to life the story of one of the greatest marriages in history whilst reflecting on the tender themes of love and loss.'

Multitude of Voyces, an organisation which brings music to underrepresented and marginalised communities, has compiled an Anthology of Sacred Music by Women, and is now seeking sponsors to help them to fund publication.

Directors Louise Stewart and Olivia Sparkhall have sought out old and new works for the Anglican liturgy written by women. Liturgical music written by women has been overlooked, “silenced by the historical norms of their times" as Stewart puts it, and the changing roles of women in the modern Anglican Church have not included a move to encourage music by women.

Here is an article that was published in the Church Times last year

https://www.churchtimes.co.uk/articles/2018/25-may/news/uk/women-s-anthology-of-church-music-will-right-historical-wrongs-say-compilers

The Daffodil Perspective is a weekly radio show championing female composers. Playing a mix of female composers alongside famous male composers to provide musical and historical context for their stories, in this way the show works to rewrite classical music history.

This week it's a jam packed show, exploring the life and work of Scandinavian romantic composer Amanda Maier with her friends Grieg and Brahms. I'm also thrilled to have music from two of my favourite trailblazing organisations this week. Firstly it's my monthly look at Illuminate Women's Music and secondly in my album of the week section I have music from label Drama Musica and their new album of guitar music, La Donne e La Chitarra. All this plus music from American composer Juliana Hall in Contemporary Corner and special surprises from Lutoslawski and Handel.

Rhinegold Publishing write:

The 2019 international Ernst von Siemens prize has been awarded to British composer Rebecca Saunders.

The award is given for lifelong service to music and is accompanied by a prize of 250,000 euros.

Previous winners include Benjamin Britten, Olivier Messiaen, György Ligeti, Claudio Abbado, Sir Harrison Birtwistle, György Kurtág, Daniel Barenboim, Anne-Sophie Mutter and Mariss Jansons. Saunders is the first female composer to win the prize.

The presentation ceremony will be held on 7 June at the Prinzregententheater in Munich.

The Board of Trustees described Saunders’ work as leaving a ‘visible and meaningful mark on contemporary music history through its astonishingly nuanced attention to timbre, and her distinctive and intensely striking sonic language’.

Saunders has previously described her work as ‘an attempt to create and sculpt sounds drawn from beneath a surface of apparent silence.’

A ‘portrait’ concert celebrating her work is performed by Ensemble Modern and soprano Juliet Fraser at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on 19 January 2019.

We've got an ace first half for you, with works by Errollyn Wallen, Hannah Kendall and culminating in Malcolm Arnold's electrifying Symphony for Strings; and the second half contains just one work - the sublime classic that is Dvořák's Serenade for Strings. It's going to be a wonderful way to welcome in 2019 - it would be really lovely to see all of you there!

I am currently working with former 47Soul manager Fadi Haddadeen (cc'ed) towards a 2019 tour, and further plans.

All our gigs (excluding music expos) are well paid, averaging at £150 per London gig, and £200+ for gigs outside of London, with expenses covered on top. Occasional expenses-only music expo gigs (e.g. WOMEX) will only be booked upon mutual agreement of all band members + manager.

All my material is available here: www.julianayazbeck.com.
