Musique est une femme

Our foundation has prepared a very special surprise to celebrate the International  Day of Music. We invite you for a WORLD PREMIERE of Vesper by Isabella Leonarda (1620-1704) performed by Capella Musicale del Duomo di Novara under direction of Paolo Monticelli. Join us at 19h on the 1st of Oct. The participation is free.  

Capella Musicale del Duomo di Novara has most of existing works by Isabella Leonarda in its repertoire. All of them are archived in the Cathedral of Novara. Capella Musicale del Duomo di Novara gives concerts with the music of Leonarda  all over the world. We believe that today’s world premiere will inspire music lovers to explore the output of not only this extraordinary composer but also her composing female contemporaries


Musique est une femme is a project which aims to reinforce this process. It is a joint initiative by the foundation TAK-Temat Aktualny Kultura /Poland, Handelsbeurs Concert Hall/Belgium, Molyvos International Music Festival/Greece, and the Cēsis Concert Hall/Latvia.



Musique est une femme is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme, Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland and Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Latvia.
