The Daffodil Perspective Needs Your Help

The 1st gender balanced show needs your help to continue. The Daffodil Perspective is the 1st of its kind, championing female composers and diversity in classical music. In the 1st year each show featured 4 times more pieces by women than the BBC and overall twice as much music than all the greatest orchestras in the world combined. Full stats available here

The Daffodil Perspective is a one-woman show. I do in-depth research, script write, curate the content, source recordings, produce and present every episode. This is a lot of work and is done voluntarily.

If you enjoy the show and the site please consider donating today. It will do so much to help champion the huge number of female composers and create more diversity in classical music.

Money raised will be used for setting up the new Daffodil Perspective Awards which will celebrate recordings of marginalised music and musicians. The funds will also go towards a new website and setting up other resources to help others create diversity.

All donations will be much appreciated.

2019 releases of women composers

Looking for new releases of women composers?

Check out this spreadsheet listing every 2019 recording featuring exclusively women composers. All with links to listen and buy!

There are so many amazing recordings out this year of contemporary women composers and historical women composers. (Although still a shamefully tiny fraction of the number recorded of male composers)

The purpose is:

  1. To provide information for anyone interested in discovering more music written by women
  2. To provide inspiration for anyone working in classical music to program a more diverse repertoire.
