Who were the women who ruled Europe’s cultural life? Royals such as Catherine the Great, Maria Teresia and many more characterized the 18th century with their view of art and music. Meet the women with power, means and opportunities in this lecture on classical music with Magdalena Fronczak.
Lecturer Magdalena Fronczak was previously active as a producer at the Gothenburg Symphony and is assistant project manager at Gbg & Co, as well as an active writer and blogger with focus on female composers in history.
During the 18th century, most of Europe was ruled by women: Maria Teresia reigned over the huge Austrian Empire for 40 years, Catherine the Great ruled Russia with an iron fist for 32 years, and even in Sweden, Queen Lovisa Ulrika orchestrated a coup in 1756 to strengthen the royal hold on the country.
In large and small countries there are women with power, means and opportunities. Many use their position to launch their own careers as composers and musicians, and as patrons of contemporary talent, they create thriving cultural centers in their hometowns.
