sample the album:
"If only Fanny Mendelssohn or Clara Schumann had been fortunate enough to have a group like the Ensemble Für Neue Musik Zürich (ENMZ) from Switzerland champion their works! While the days when women composers hovered in the shadow of their male colleagues are thankfully over, the playing field is perhaps not yet entirely even. In the 1980s, the ENMZ (whose members are all men) realized that music by contemporary female composers was not receiving its rightful attention, so they decided to help remedy the situation. For several decades the group has been performing and recording pieces of diverse aesthetic styles by talented women composers, commissioning new w orks and supporting the women in their artistic endeavors."-Vivien Schweitzer
