Professor of music and flutist Peggy Vagts has released a new CD of compositions by women, Persistence, Works by Women, 1850-1950: Music for Flute and Piano. Vagts is joined by UNH Murkland lecturer Arlene Kies on piano.

“While the composers on this recording wrote in a variety of styles,” says Vagts, “they all shared one admirable quality: persistence. They persevered as composers despite the many limitations placed on them as women of their era.”

The composers whose works are performed include:

Lili Boulanger (1893-1918)
Mélanie Bonis (Mel-Bonis) (1858-1937)
Clara Wieck Schumann (1819-1896)
Claude Arrieu (Louise Marie Simon) (1903-1990)
Peggy Glanville-Hicks (1912-1990)
Amy Cheney Beach (1867-1944)
