Brand new album: 'HERS' by Carr-Petrova Duo

This new release celebrates the women who, despite facing discrimination on both personal and institutional levels, nevertheless forged their own artistic paths. From the medieval era to the present, these composers not only often strayed outside of the narrow bounds of society’s expectations, but also produced music that testifies to their creativity, experience, and brilliance. As the performers describe, it captures “the vision, strength, resilience, and vital contributions of women throughout history.”
