Featured at this year’s London Festival of Baroque Music, le Concert de l’Hostel-Dieu presents a programme dedicated to female composers and poets. This little-known area in Renaissance music grew out from the new emphasis placed on women’s education by the humanists. Conductor Franck-Emmanuel Comte will discuss the key values of this time with journalist and novelist Jessica Duchen before the concert.
