Short concerts with works by women composers from Linz
Name a composer from Linz! In most cases, the choice would probably fall on the namesake of the Brucknerhaus Linz. But what about female composers? If you'd like to investigate this question, you'll be rewarded from September 5 to 7 with the discovery of three fascinating female artists, each of whom has left her own mark on the Upper Austrian capital. Three short concerts in downtown Linz will each be devoted to the work of a Linz composer. Students of the Anton Bruckner Private University Linz will perform works by Mathilde Kralik von Meyrswalden, who was born in Linz; Hedda Wagner, who worked as a journalist, writer, composer and music teacher in Linz; and Frida Kern, who moved to Linz with her family as a small child and later enjoyed success throughout Europe as a composer and conductor with her all-female orchestra.
The city walks originally planned in the run-up to the concerts can regrettably not take place.
