Radical Mid-Century Modernists: Four women who kicked conservative ideas out of the Conservatoire

Hear Professor of Bassoon Dr. Jeffrey Lyman and pianist Liz Ames perform five standard breaking works composed for the annual competitions at the Paris Conservatoire. These contest pieces by Odette Gartenlaub, Marie-Véra Maixandeau, Ginette Keller, and Ida Gotkovsky explore new performance techniques and more modern musical languages than the works composed by their more conservative colleagues, yet they are the only works composed by women in the nearly 200-year history of the bassoon concours.

Odette Gartenlaub (1922-2014): Sonatine (1959)

Marie-Véra Maixandeau (b. 1929): Lied et Rondo (1953)

Ginette Keller (1925-2013?): Ébauches (1973)

Odette Gartenlaub: Profils (1966, rev. 2000)

Ida Gotkovsky (b. 1933): Variations Concertantes (1970)
