Discover the lives and works of four trailblazing composers — Ethel Smyth, Rebecca Clarke, Dorothy Howell and Doreen Carwithen. In their time, these women were celebrities. They composed exquisite music and pioneered creative careers, but today they are ghostly presences, surviving as footnotes to their male contemporaries — until now. Join Leah Broad, author of Quartet, who will be resurrecting their stories and introducing their work through specially selected recordings.
