Written by female composers during their twenties, the music in this concert dazzles with the unique brilliance that is so prevalent in composers at the beginnings of their careers. Imogen Holst’s evocation of the English pastorale gives way to the beauty of Ella Macens, which in turn sets up Fanny Mendelssohn’s intelligent string quartet. In a program of perfectly balanced artistic aesthetics, each of these composers justly deserves a surge in popularity.
