Female Composers – Sheet Music & Scores

Throughout history, female composers have had a hard time in the male-dominated world of classical music. As a result, many musical treasures that have fallen into oblivion are only now being rediscovered, and they offer a wealth of new classical compositions to thrill audiences and inspire musicians all around the world. Browse our sheet music and scores, and explore the wide world of female composers with Stretta Music today!

Contemporary Female Composers

In recent decades, female composers have come to the fore more and more…

In 1997, British composer Rachel Portman became the first woman to win the Oscar for Best Original Score for her work on the motion picture “Emma.”

In 2019, the opera “Orlando” by the Austrian composer Olga Neuwirth (b.1968) was premiered at the Vienna State Opera, making her the first female composer to be commissioned to write a full-length opera.

And even at the start of the new millennium, we already have a wonderful young female composer who composed her first opera at the age of 7, the child prodigy Alma Deutscher (b.2005)!

Furor

The music publisher Furore, founded in 1986, has set itself the task of specifically publishing sheet music by classical and contemporary female composers.
