The Soul of the Americas Doesn't Include Women

Music @ Menlo has a two-day Focus Residency coming up, called The Soul of the Americas. Here's the program that will be played in association with the residency:

COPLANDEl Salón México for Solo Piano
BERNSTEIN: Three Meditations from Mass (version for piano, cello, and percussion)
BARBER: Souvenirs for Piano, Four Hands, op. 28 
GOLIJOV: Mariel for Cello and Marimba
VILLA-LOBOSDivagação for Cello, Piano, and Drum;
A maré encheu” from Guia prático; and “O Polichinelo” from A prole do bebê no. 1 for Solo Piano
GINASTERA: Pampeana no. 2, Rhapsody for Cello and Piano, op. 21
GERSHWINCuban Overture for Piano, Four Hands, and Percussion

Really nice to know that women don't have souls, or something like that, she wrote while listening to Florence Price, although Copland writing fake Mexican music and Gershwin writing fake Cuban music do count.
