Furtados’ Con Brio 2019 – More Schumania: Celebrating Women 

Western Music Festival & Piano Competition

In 2010, Anthony Gomes and Parvesh Java decided to memorialize John Gomes and celebrate Robert Schumann’s bicentenary by creating the first Con Brio, called Schumania. Today we embark on the tenth edition of the festival and this time we are celebrating Clara Schumann’s bicentenary. We offer you More Schumania where we celebrate Clara by showcasing the work of women composers’ right from the 11th century till the 21st. Clara was the first woman to achieve equal status to her male counterparts, not only as a composer but also as a pianist, thereby paving the way for other women composers and instrumentalists.

Chamber Music: 

Marialena Fernandes and Ranko Markovic will perform Astrid Spitznagel’s Divertimento with Nadine Crasto and Mark Troop will perform Hilary Tann’s Water’s Edge, both for piano duet. Kyong Mee Choi’s To Unformed will introduce audiences to the world of electro-acoustic music. Other composers on the programme include Clara Schumann, Elizabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, Laura Netzel, Luise Adolpha Le Beau, Mélanie Bonis, Nadia Boulanger and Sofia Gubaidulina. Also performing are Earl Vasanthakumar, Eshvita Menezes, Joy Peter, Judyline Fernandes, Kevin Kirs Verstege, Leo Velho, Nakul Jogdeo, Priya Ann Sequeira, Rajat Chowdhury, Shirish Malhotra, Zubin Behram-Kamdin and last year’s winner, Rishabh Jain.
