To fill in a gap in music history: This miniseries tells the story of some of the amazingly strong female composers and their hidden orchestral music, narrated by the charismatic Norwegian conductor Cathrine Winnes. We follow their fights as they take their music out of the domestic chambers and into the public realm. Stakes were extremely high. Some gave up their children. Others divorced their husbands or composed in secret at night. More than one published under their brothers' names. Today we know them as Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel, Signe Lund, Lili Boulanger, Cecile Chaminade and Clara Schumann. And of course, Ethel Smyth and her toothbrush.
Director: Anders Lindstad
