Fantastic Women

Bauwien van der Meer

Proud. Beautiful. Resigned. Funny. Masculine. Ugly. Victim. Perpetrator. Sexy. Bizarre. Angry. Weak. Whore. Strong. Fragile. Fantastic.

There has been increasing attention for female composers in recent years, because of the sheer volume of beautiful music written by women. With the song recital Fantastic Women. Bauwien van der Meer and pianist Caecilia Boschman bring an ode to these fantastic, unconventional ladies. In ten new songs by ten international women, they show the absurd reality of being a woman. Some composers wrote new work especially for the program, of others, rarely performed work was chosen. With bizarre facts, humour, pure provocation, and admiration, they create a poetic stand up that is not so much an indictment but rather a forum for the fantastic woman.
