Season Announcements: Women Who Compose
A new feature: I'll be taking note of works composed by women and programs conducted by women on each of the season announcements. I am considering whether to try to count soloists, but probably not; I can tell you off the top of my head that the only female piano soloist at NYPO in the coming season is Yuja Wang (in the Chinese New Year program!), though there are several women appearing as violin soloists. There are something like 7 or 8 male pianists; the total number of piano soloists might be larger if Yefim Bronfman weren't on so many programs.
